Because of Jesus

Easter...such an amazing day!

But before that day...

Jesus was betrayed...beaten beyond recognition...made to walk through an immense crowd carrying His own cross...spat upon...mocked...had a crown of thorns placed on His head and then shoved down into it...hung on the cross with nails (spikes) driven through His feet and wrists...suffered agonies we can't even imagine...all for me...and all for you. 

It isn't just a story or a fairy tale that scribes penned down from their is real life and Jesus lived it for us. I'm not going to relate to you everything that happened because you can surely read it for yourself...and you should.  But I do want to tell you something that I have found out for myself about that cross...His cross...the one Jesus bled and died on so that we could live fully and forever. 

As Christians we can go to the Lord in prayer asking forgiveness for our sins...anytime...and we can leave our burdens there. A burden is something we carry that is heavy on our can weigh us down so deeply that we can't even breathe at times.  I know from experience that getting to the cross at times is hard!  We are human...flesh and blood...and the surrendering of oneself can be a process you have to learn...and you must!  You need to completely abandon yourself at the cross.  Place all your hurts...needs...wants...everything...leave them all at the foot of the cross and walk away.  Then ask Jesus to come in and do the work inside of you that needs done...change you from the inside out! hard...but so amazingly worth the pain.  Because the pain turns into knowing that you will be okay. 

Because of JESUS...all because of HIM!

So on this Easter weekend pick up your  Start with the betrayal and read through to the resurrection. Jesus rose from death and came out of that tomb and lives today! You can live today as's up to you.

Luke 22 through 24
An excellent read!

"until we see JESUS...face to face"


  1. Hi Chelle,
    I agree with everything you have said, it is our choice and we need to come to Jesus with prayer and faith.
    For some reason your blog is coming up as a year old and that is why I have not seen it. It is coming up far down on the side bar.
    I will keep a check on it from now on.
    God bless Chelle.

    1. Hi Brenda,
      Thank you for coming by. Yes, my blog hasn't worked right for sometime now. I have tried fixing it with no success. When I have time I am going to set up a new one and will let you know when I do.
      Be blessed Brenda.

  2. That will be lovely Chelle. I will still come over to this one until you do.
    You too be blessed with all our lovely Lord has for us.

  3. Hi reformed rebel, I love your post, it's all about the Lord our God Jesus Christ, and I can see that you really are a reformed rebel :-)
