I want to take this post to advertise for my church 🙂
So, this weekend at Trinity is going to be soooo awesome. Mostly because we will be celebrating two super incredible days in history. The day Jesus gave up his life to defeat our sin is, of course, Good Friday. If you haven’t been to a Good Friday service at Trinity, it’s time to try it! It’s always so great, and very unique. The church is open anytime from 6:30-8:30pm for you and your family to come and reflect on Christ’s sacrifice.
THEN on Sunday we are going to have a huge celebration for Easter! How fantastic is it that not only did Jesus die (which lots of people do), but He rose again from the dead to conquer death once and for all! We don’t have anything necessarily flashy planned, just a few excellent reminders of the work that Jesus has done in our lives.
On that note, I would like to be a little transparent for a moment.
One of the many things that Jesus has saved me from is pride. Now, it’s pretty hard not to be proud when you’re so awesome (…kidding…), but for a while, I really did consider myself much better than I should have. I also tended to really look down on people who weren’t really living how I thought they should be living. God decided that I needed that out of my life, and He used a missions trip to Australia to do that. While I cannot say that I haven’t still had some pride issues since that time, I can say that everyday I move another step away from that person. God has also been at work in my life on issues of lust, anger, jealousy, and all kinds of selfishness.
As part of our service on Sunday, we will hear about the work that Jesus has done in the lives of many of our church body.
From what has Jesus saved you?
