Easter: Broken for You
Spring. Lilies and tulips. Baskets and bunnies.Easter is the season of new life……and of broken things.Watch this short video, Falling Plates, about many broken things: hearts, marriages, lives…
and then we will talk about one who was broken to heal our brokenness, to restore hearts, marriages, relationships, lives.
Easter is about more than fixing broken things. It’s about wholeness and new life.
Three days before Easter: “And he (Jesus) took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’” (Luke 22:19)
And then He did it: He gave his body to be broken for you and for me:
Crucified, laid behind a stone
You lived to die, rejected and alone
Like a rose, trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
Above all. (Michael W. Smith-“Above All”)
Gratefully the story doesn’t end with “like a rose, trampled on the ground.” That was just the prelude, the foreword.
The real story is one of triumph—it is a story of resurrection: of Jesus, and for you and me.
Easter is a season of grace and mercy and an offer of a truly new life for you and for me.
Shattered things restored, renewed—made whole.
What about you? Where are you broken? Where have you found healing? C2013 Judy Douglass
