While we were yet sinners…

While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.This morning as we were praying for our day and our customers I was reminded that this week SHOULD have greater significance than the normal day-to-day activities of bookselling. I confess that passion-week often comes & goes for me like any other, except that we have a little extra candy after Sunday.  Easter morning is a special celebration and I am mindful of the significance of it all. But the reality of living is that after 60 some-odd years of celebrating the most important event in history, I’m a little too comfortable with the idea. I know all about “whosoever will” and “Jesus Loves Me” and “By his stripes…” etc. I’m thankful and blessed by it all, but more often than not, just a tad complacent in my relationship with the Savior.

As we were praying I reflected briefly on “While we were yet sinners…” and asked God to help us remember and rejoice in that revelation. I opened my email box to find the above meme waiting for me. I guess that’s going to be a theme this week.
