Dear New Life Friends,
How many ways can you use the word reflection?
Cogitate, ruminate, meditate...
Easter and all that leads up to it is worthy of pause for serious thought. That’s why the followers of Jesus for thousands of years have tried to approach the cross and the resurrection of Jesus with intentional consideration.
Redemption is a word we don’t use much anymore, but is extremely important and has lasting impact.
Essentially, redemption is buying back something that was originally yours, but for some reason has fallen into the hands of another. Redemption is what God has done for you, for me and for the world. Through Jesus, a debt has been paid that we could not pay ourselves.
So, what does the cross and the cup and the bread have to do with redemption?
That’s the question we’ll be considering during our Night of Redemption, April 14 at 7:30pm. This service of music and message is deliberately designed to cause us to ponder just that.
If you are not able to spend the evening with us for Night of Redemption, then I hope you will make time for reflection on Good Friday to consider the implications of the cross and our redemption.
How many ways can you use the word reflection? I tried at least ten times in this blog, but whether you caught that or not, I think the point is made:
Taking time for reflection on redemption will lead to a better experience of resurrection.
I continue to pray that this year you truly have an Easter experience of the extravagant love of God.
Blessings in Christ,
