Too often we are expected to follow along without knowing why we are doing what we are doing. Christian practices are no different, like prayer. Prayer isn’t meant to be a last ditch effort to get the Almighty to save us from our human failures. Prayer instead is an ongoing response to our joy in the Lord.
The celebration of Christmas is about a reminder that the world today does not need a new savior. We have a Savior, and he doesn’t live in a gold-adorned high-rise.
The promise and good news of Easter isn’t about what God has done, it’s about what God is still doing. It’s about God’s replicated grace, unending, and unmatched. He is risen!
