This day is a day of remembrance.
The sacrifice and resurrection of the Messiah. The Savior making good on what He promised He would do. The event that changed the course of history as we know it.
It changed EVERYTHING.
Yet, many days, even as I remember, my heart feels unchanged.
My world was changed by the humble presence of our Savior, but my heart is not always so humble.
My world was changed by the generosity of His giving, but I am not often so quick to be generous.
My world was changed by the love that His sacrifice required, but my love does not want to act in sacrifice to others.
My world was changed by the selflessness of a King who came as a lowly baby, but my heart is frequently selfish rather than selfless.
My world was changed by His excruciating Obedience in carrying out the plan to become sin and death, but Obedience to my Father comes slowly.
My world was changed by the Forgiveness that His dying breath cried out, still I lack forgiveness for those around me.
Today, I remember what HE did. I remember how His act was not only world changing, it was life changing. Life changing for you. Life changing for me.
Because He takes my stubborn heart and He works. He will not leave me unchanged. Because what He did CANNOT leave me unchanged.
And in the midst of my days where my heart wonders from my Savior, and my broken nature come out more than I’d like, His grace covers me. AND that is truly a game changer.
Lord, today, let me remember the reality of Your sacrifice, cover my wavering heart with your grace and let me be changed.
