“What was the last thing you read, heard, or saw that inspired you?”
As we prepare for the Easter season at the Christian school where I teach, I’ve seen a lot of artwork in the halls depicting the cross. This inspires me because it’s a reminder that God turned something terrible into a beautiful reminder of His grace. We can now look at a cross and think of the salvation found only in Jesus Christ, rather than thinking about the method the Roman Empire used to execute common criminals.
It’s also inspiring, as we approach Resurrection Sunday on the calendar, to think about how Jesus was raised from the dead, and how we have also been raised from the death of sin, if we are in Christ. As flowers bloom and the trees and grass grow green after a dormant winter period, we can be reminded how we have a fresh start because our sins are no longer what defines us. – We can be alive and free in Christ!!!
