God is incredible and His love for us so perfect, may we worship Him today like never before. I pray you are able to gather with friends and family and celebrate our marvelous Lord.

We commemorate the two greatest events in human History this weekend and it’s wonderful that we make a big deal out the death and resurrection of our Lord each year. But what if we took the celebration to a whole new level? What if throughout each day we took to heart the perfect love that Christ’s sacrifice demonstrated and were perpetually thankful? What if we walked through each day with the confidence that Jesus’ resurrection truly did finish it, that the battle is won and that our place with the Father is just as secure as His? Now that would be a Holyday.

The holiness of God is that He is completely apart from sin and totally incorruptible. His every thought and action are pure and in the best interest of everyone. That’s a hard one to wrap our brains around but true. The other attributes we’ve looked at so far help us understand this a bit better but from our view sometimes it doesn’t seem so. I’ve heard it taught that it’s because of God’s holiness that He’s not around when we are in sin. Nonsense. God’s always around and eager to help us exchange our crap for treasure. I use the word help here because we are usually part of the process. We are faced with choice at every turn, we can choose with God, or we can choose without.

Scripture says, “Stand fast in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” We don’t have to let the same old things keep us from the freedom God intends for us. Standing fast means putting the burden in His hands and leaving it there.
