My daughter Namine loves to draw. One morning, she asked for some paper to draw on, and of course I was happy to oblige. I sat and watched as she drew a cross. She looked up at me. "I'm drawing Jesus on the cross. But He's not done yet because He'll rise from the dead."
This Lenten season, we look to Jesus as he embarks on the path to the cross. But we remember that the cross was not the end; Jesus' life and mission did not end there. He wasn't done yet. He rose from the dead, securing our place in heaven with Him.
Pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son to be the sacrifice in our place. Help me to have faith like a child, fully trusting in You. Amen.
