Easter Sunday greetings everyone - the Lord is Risen!
Speaking of Good Friday, Grandma Cybersalt and I watched an online Good Friday service which was a cooperative effort by many local churches in our city.
To be honest, I wasn't very motivated to watch another service online and thought I'd just keep the day like I have been every other pandemic day (apparently, according to our son, all these similar days in the pandemic are being referred to as "Blursday.") But Susan wanted to watch a service and as I searched within myself I remembered that Jesus' death on the cross for my sins certainly demanded a heart response from me greater than plopping in front of the computer and doing more work.
Boy, was I ever glad we took part in that service by watching it because during it I learned something about the last supper that I never new before. It was like chocolate for my soul!
Here's a key truth about seeking God - we do it because He is gracious, He wants to do something in us and for us, and He just might! Don't get me wrong, I get it that when we don't feel like seeking God our minds have convinced themselves that there isn't anything likely to come out of whatever act or step of obedience it will take to drag our buts to do the right, decent, and reverent thing.
In such times, let's not lose sight of the fact that we are responsible to disciple ourselves in our walk with Jesus. We've fallen into a pretty sad state when we can't even turn on a video to feed our souls and take an easy opportunity to let God do something outside of our life's rut.
The great news is, even if we are in that, or a different, sad state God's grace has something for us!
Today's video share wonderfully reminds of that truth.
