My husband and I had the privilege of traveling to Israel and one of the sites we visited is “The Way of the Cross” symbolizing where Jesus was condemned and whipped and this “Way” extends to Calvary where Jesus was crucified and buried.
My friends, walking through this symbolic site for us was not only a humbling experience but also a reminder that the path to our freedom and salvation was not an easy path for Jesus, but He took it anyway because for Him, we were worth the price – John 3:16 sums it up for us “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 walked the path of suffering so that you and I can choose the path to freedom. So, as we celebrate another Easter, what does choosing the path of freedom mean? It means:
- Taking ownership of our actions – if you are not living according to the will of God for your life. By so doing, acknowledging you have sinned and confessing before God those deed(s).
- Repentance – intentionally turning away from those deed(s) and daily praying for help to live a life that is pleasing to God.
- Accepting that we have been forgiven – we just forgive and forget also. We don’t want to carry our baggage around – it’s too heavy.
Christ follower, this Easter season – choose the Path of Freedom! If you are currently not a Christ follower, come and experience this special love.
All glory to God!
