Though you have not seen Him, you love Him. Though you do not now see Him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. - 1 Peter 1:8 & 9 (ESV)
Out of sight, out of mind is how I am prone to living my life. I am a forgetful person. When I remember to pack my lunch for my workday, I have to put it in front of the door to be sure I take it with me. I autopay all of my bills so that my lights do not get turned off. I have an alarm on my phone that goes off on the first of the month to remind me to pay my rent.
If I did not have these things in place, I would not get anything done. If I cannot see it in front of me, I forget about it.
And I forget about Jesus. I forget about Him all of the time. I take for granted that He was sacrificed, that He endured pain and mocking and suffering on my behalf. I was not there. I did not see it. I only heard the stories.
I get so wrapped up in my everyday life that I do not always take the time to seek Him. I forget. But then Easter comes, and I pause. I stop and think about what He has done for me. For you.
I place myself in His shoes. And I place myself in the shoes of the disciples. His story comes alive, and I cling to it. I fall in love with Him all over again. My heart becomes overwhelmed, and I simply cannot contain the joy, nor find the words of gratitude that could ever cover the debt He paid for me. I come undone.
It is unfathomable to me that I could be loved that deeply and it is all for His glory.
I never want to forget Him ever again. Take the time to stop and just be with Him. Remember what He has done. Let yourself be undone by Him.
