Ϟ•► The Blessing Of April's Spring ◄•Ϟ

Today's Gospel Truth ~ "Mary took a pound of costly ointment of pure nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the ointment."  John 12:3

Every year we enter into the season of spring, a season to rise above the old and leap into a fresh newness of life in Christ.  During spring time we not only have the opportunity to enjoy the birthing of new ideas, dreams, or plans but we also have the wonderful opportunity to be apart of and enjoy the season of our Lord's resurrection.  Easter, the Blessing of April's Spring is here again and as we focus on the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us, we can celebrate in hope that just as both he and Lazarus were raised from the dead, we too will receive great deliverance from our darkest moments. 

God was very strategic in giving us the season of Easter where we can rest and reflect on the journey and life of our elder brother Jesus.  Jesus' mission on earth was to show us how to live as his brothers and sisters and achieve the best results concerning everything we face.  As we remember one of Jesus' greatest miracles with his beloved friend Lazarus who experienced delay yet while in death was not denied.  Lazarus who laid dead for four days was restored to life by the originator of life himself, he was redeemed from extinction into new life for the world to testify of the power of God.  The loving bond of two very dear friends together at the same time in the same place sharing a meal {John 12:2} signifies that God will most certainly help you even in death, remove you from constrained positions, and cause you to spring forth with fresh new life.  As the name Lazarus signifies "God will help." 

Just as Jesus gave all of us the greatest gift by dying to bring forth new life we too must die to a lot of conditions, mindsets, habits, personality hang-ups to allow the 'new' that he wants to do in our lives to spring forth this season.  Of course there are many reasons we can share in this season of Spring, but the greatest being Easter we can honor the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus who has done more for us than we can ever imagine.  Even in this season of honor and appreciation we must build our trust in God who has shown us in both Lazarus and Jesus that he is faithful even in the end.  It is just God's style, he will never stop working until you are completely delivered.  Happy Easter ….. Enjoy the Blessing of Your April's Spring. **AMEN**
