Love Love Love
We have just finished our year 8 “the meaning of Easter” lessons at the high school. Its also been the topic (understandably) of our other groups this last week.
I have talked about Gods desire for true relationship with us, his unabounding love which caused Jesus to stand in our stead,
We have watched the end or Narnia and talked about Jesus as the Lamb of God…
…I have encouraged people to read The Shack and Lukes Gospel from chaper 22.
These things, they are all to enourage our young people (and us) to revisit the
that is Easter, to claim it back from the corporate monster of chocolate eggs and bunnies. Like it says in the bible:
Jude 1:2 (MSG)
Relax, everything’s going to be all right; rest, everything’s coming together; open your hearts, love is on the way!
I am reminded how amazing it is to be loved by a God who has always been bothered. Who doesnt just reach down in love, but who
willingly giving himself so we can know the joy of a life spent with Him.
