There are 20 days until Easter. Is time passing you by in busyness? If you are like me and you need moments to fully focus your thoughts on the reason for this season (See? That quote wasn't just for Christmas.), then I highly recommend His Name Is Jesus by Max Lucado.
Some beautiful excerpts from this book....
"He stilled a storm with one command.
He raised the dead with one proclamation.
He rerouted the history of the world with one life."
"Christ came to earth for one reason:
to give His life as a ransom for you, for me, for all of us.
He sacrificed himself to give us a second chance."
"God remembers the small birds of the world. We remember the eagles. We make bronze statues of the hawk. We name our athletic teams after the falcons. But God notices the sparrows. He makes time for the children and takes note of the lepers. He offers the woman in adultery a second chance and the thief on the cross a personal invitation. Christ is partial to the beat up and done in."
When I look at the verse above I see many things, but most of all I see answers. People seem to be caught up in anxiety and fear about what is going on around them and in their lives right now, but if we each could exalt God and allow His glory to reign over our land... just imagine!
