Good Friday afternoon! I received this message from a brother in Christ and I thought it would be great to share as he shared with me…
Two thousand years ago the Messiah won big. Death, danger, disease, the devil – everything that contaminates life – stood impotently by as Christ was proclaimed champion. Easter is the Lord’s victory shout. Heaven is one eternal victory celebration.
You’ll have to wait until you get to Heaven to have a struggle-free life. But you don’t have to wait to start celebrating. You can join Heaven’s victory party any time you’re ready.
Observe the little children. They find something to celebrate in every facet of life. And so, life itself is a celebration. Don’t limit your victory celebrations to your own puny successes. The whole universe is ablaze with God’s winning glory.
Every sunrise proves the Artist is still painting. Every dogwood blossom proves the Creator is still creating. Every birth proves the Potter is still spinning His wheel. Every eternal longing proves the Groom is still courting His bride. Every peaceful moment proves the Comforter is still comforting. Every weeping sinner proves the Father is still running to meet His children.
If you want a chance at childhood again, you’ll have to learn to celebrate someone else’s victory. Thankfully, you don’t have to look far to find a Victor. Open your eyes. Look heavenward. Your Father has won it all. And when you’re His child, you’re welcomed to the celebration. Rejoice! You can never be a loser.

Have a blessed Easter!
