Because You are Worth It

Could you imagine what was going through his mind? A king crowned in thorns. A man who once walked with a multitude of people, found himself alone in a cross. The same person who could distinguish an individual touch amongst a crown and had time for everyone was suddenly forgotten. The one who could heal with a single touch now could not get a helping hand. The truest of friends was betrayed. He walked the world spreading love, justice, mercy and forgiveness yet now he found him self condemned for sins he didnt commit. The Messiah who performed miracles, crucified for the world to see. Just try to imagine!

John 3: 16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. Jesus came to redeem us from sin and bring the grace of the Lord to us. He was our sacrificial lamb. And all though he could have gotten down from the cross he chose not too. He knew that the cause was too important. He came for a reason, and he had to complete his mission for the cause. You were that cause. I was that cause. We were the cause. So even then, he already had us in mind.

I know what was going through his mind. In the mist of it all; during his most difficult moments all he could do was thinking about was us. In a time were I would have given up or came down from the cross he chose to think about me. He chose to think about you. He chose to think about us. And do you know why; because you are worth it, I am worth it, we are worth it. He’s love is greater than we will ever be able to comprehended. His love is honest and sincere. This Easter, don’t forget the one who never forgot you. Don’t forget to tell your kids that Easter is not a day of bunnies and colorful eggs, but a time where we honor the Messiah. Don’t forget Jesus. Don’t forget his sacrifice and do forget that he did it for us!

May the peace and love of the Lord be with you.
