Easter’s over — the marketing hype; the retail rituals of buying baskets, bunnies, cards and clothes; and the religious rites. Easter candy’s cheap — 50%, 75%, or even 90% off now. We’ve moved on . . . but Jesus Christ still roars. Can you hear Him?
“I’m alive and present with you! Not for a holiday, but forever! Everyday that you live, I’m calling your name; seeking a relationship with you the way a poor woman searches for her misplaced money.”
“Stop running away, pretending I’m not relevant in a texting and tablet world. Who invented instant communication? Not smartphones — Me! I don’t message you in the palm of your hand — My voice roars inside of you — in your heart and in your mind! (I am The Voice!)”
“It takes great effort not to hear Me, you have to drown Me out. I am continually spraying you with conscience, conviction, inspiration, flashes of insight, the appreciation of beauty. I’ve given you intellect, surrounded you with mysterious complexity, breathed into you life, displayed love and sacrifice.”
“Yet you think I’m hiding — distant or non-existent. Hogwash! You’re surrounded by Me the way a fish is surrounded by water. Why won’t you hear? Why won’t you see? Why won’t you follow and obey Me every moment of every day?”
