During this Holy Week, I have been reminded of the intentional purpose of God – of the plans He lays out for His creation well in advance of the times and seasons. Sometimes these plans are embodied in tombs, as our Savior’s was, awaiting the resurrection joy of Easter.
From the beginning, God had a plan for humankind, male and female; He called them “very good.” He had a plan for His people – those He would call His children and draw to Himself. He had a plan for those who would receive Him and those who would reject Him. He had a plan that centered on His coming into our world to seek and to save the lost.
“For God So loved the world that He gave His only Son. That whoever believes in
Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into
the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.” John 3:16-17
Even today, for us here in America, His purposes remain true and His plans undeterred. Though 2020 was a difficult year for many of us, the celebration of Easter reminds us of the hope we have in Christ.
Here at Concerned Women for America (CWA), we are holding on to that promise, standing on the firm foundation of God’s truth.
So, we invite you to celebrate with us this Easter. He lives!
Let us then not be bogged down by the darkness around us but let us walk in the light of Christ. Let us press on in faith, prayer, and purposeful action with the full knowledge that He is able to do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.
May this Easter fill you and your family with joy and peace as you trust in Him.
