I, like I'm sure all of you, have spent the last few days really reflecting on my LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS the CHRIST,. What an awesome thing to call HIM not only SAVIOR but LORD, and to have HIM call me HIS child. That blows my mind still today after being HIS child for all these years.

As we (I) meditate, these last few days, on ALL that HIS BLOOD purchased for us (me), my most fervent PRAYER is that not one stripe, not one spit, not one cursing, will have been in vain on my behalf. That I might live up to EVERYTHING that HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD purchased for me. Not only in the life to come but here and now, TODAY!!! My greatest hope and desire is to hear HIM say, "Well done".

My wish, for each and every one of you that pass by this little tribute of mine to MY RISEN LORD and MASTER, is that you know and experience HIS LOVE and FORGIVENESS for you.

HE truly PAID IT ALL, once and for all.

Totally! I've come to believe that the good news is Him. All His gifts are wonderful, but to know and love Him and to be known and loved by Him are the greatest gifts His finished work wrought for us.

As we celebrate our Risen Lord on Sunday I will be thinking of you, an added blessing in my life :)

Yes, my sins are blotted out I know, praise God!

We are apart of the family, and if not on this earth, then in our eternal home we will meet someday :)

I love this post! At bible study today, the ladies and I stopped to reflect a bit about how awesome our Lord truly is, and how we want each day to begin in praise and awe of Him. You do an amazing job of always directing our thoughts and hearts to our Savior. Be blessed this Easter!
