"Why is it called good when what happened to Jesus was so bad?" she asks.
Love, it's called good because it's the only reason we are here. The bad Jesus suffered made us good, righteous and acceptable to God.
It's good because it didn't stop Jesus from living. He even conquered death to live with us, sweetheart.
What happened to Jesus is where we find our hope.
It's very good because it was necessary. The only way, honey. Things just aren't always as they seem.
As my girlfriend, Renee Swope says in her new book:
"Jesus did not die on the cross just to get us our of hell and into heaven. He died on the cross to get Himself out of heaven and into us! It's what we were made for... God created us in His image to reveal His glory by giving visibility to His invisible character within us. Christ in us is the hope of glory."
For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. Colossians 1:27 NLT
Join me in praying forward your salvation today. Pray for a potential christian, someone who doesn't know Christ yet. Pray that would know Christ, the hope of glory this Easter weekend.
If you link up, we will gather in prayer together.
