Easter Resolution

All too often, we set our focus on success and greatness by “having greatness”. Great cars, great houses, great jobs, great degrees and so forth.

Yet, the GREATEST man to have walked this earth and still to this day,  has the GREATEST affect on every man, had none of these things.

We have come to the end of the Easter holidays, a time where we celebrated the Lord’s great sacrifice for each and every one of us. But let us not keep this celebration just for Easter but rather keep remembering this throughout the year, as we go on with our lives. Keeping in mind that “greatness” comes not in what we have but rather, in what we do for others.

For me, if there had to be such a thing, as an “Easter Resolution”, then my resolution is to try and not miss any opportunity to share the Gospel and tell of the Lord’s amazing love with those that know Him not. What will your “Easter Resolution” be?

Be awesomely blessed! 🙂

Cláudia

ONE SOLITARY LIFE

He was born in an obscure village,
the child of a peasant woman.
He grew up in another obscure village,
where he worked in a carpenter shop
until he was thirty.
Then for three years
he was an itinerant preacher.
He never set foot inside a big city.
He never traveled two hundred miles
from the place he was born.
He never wrote a book,
or held an office.
He did none of these things
that usually accompany greatness.

While he was still a young man,
the tide of popular opinion
turned against him.
His friends deserted him.
He was turned over to his enemies,
and went through the mockery of a trial.
He was nailed to a cross
between two thieves.
While he was dying,
his executioners gambled
for the only piece of property he had –
his coat.
When he was dead,
he was taken down
and laid in a borrowed grave.

Nineteen centuries have come and gone,
and today his is the central figure
for much of the human race.
All the armies that ever marched,
and all the navies that ever sailed,
and all the parliaments that ever sat,
and all the kings that ever reigned,
put together
have not affected the life of man
upon this earth as powerfully as this

“One Solitary Life.”
