Easter Reading from Beth

Dear Loved of God,

Rather than write a blog post as I normally do at this most sacred time on our Christian calendar, I felt that perhaps God was leading me to simply speak Scripture pertaining to the arrest, suffering, crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. My prayer is that God would use His own Word to stir your heart with remembrance toward the most pivotal weekend in all of human history. My hope is that you can grab 20 minutes over this Easter weekend to watch and listen in order to meditate on a Scripture narrative as powerful today as it was the day God inspired the pens of men.

I am deeply grateful to Stephen Proctor, one of my all-time favorite fellow-conspirators, for weaving in fitting but unobtrusive images and for Tony Anderson for providing music of his own composition.

Because of Jesus,

    Beautiful. As Christ was conversing with His Father – “Lord if you will take this cup.” I imagine Him saying, “Not Melissa’s sins. They are too great. They are hers!” But then as He considered it all he replied,”Let me take them. I will take them all.” Praise His name he took them all. Once and for all. By grace are we saved. Beautiful.

    Thank you for this beautiful summary of the great gifts God gave us on that holy weekend 2017 years ago! I have been studying this topic for 2 weeks and found this summary powerful and anointed. Bless you as you continue to spread the word! We are New Creatures in Christ by His grace and for His glory so that we can share the good news to others still bound in their Old way of life. Jesus is Good News to the world!

    Hi Beth, for some reason I’m not able to see your blog videos anymore- I’ve tried Firefox, chrome and my iPhone but they don’t show up. On Firefox I’m getting an error code that says the Vimeo is configured improperly(?) can your media person check? I’d love to be able to see these! Happy Easter!
