Today I weep tears of JOY. “And he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “BEHOLD, the Lamb of God.”

Today I REJOICE for my savior’s sacrifice, for He has given me an eternity.

Today, He has RISEN, and my heart aches with ringing joy.

For so long I have lingered on shame’s doorstep. Wondering if I am able to receive the blessing of mercy. Much of my younger life consisted of my heart being cunningly led by foolish and boyish charms. I have spent years praying and calling out to my Father in heaven waiting and asking for Him to heal my continual brokenness. Little did I know or understand the sacrifice His life extinguishing on the cross meant for my soul.

My God came to my rescue. He scooped me up with gentleness, staying my restless heart, showing me His glory. He brought me humbly to my knee, a white flag of submission wrapped across my chest. I know now I am second to His glory and nothing will trample the eternity promised by my King, “They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is Lord of lords and King of Kings…” (Rev. 17:14)

I worship today for the promise I have received from the salvation freely given to me yet heavily paid. Jesus’s death on the cross was a guilt offering, “He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.” (Isaiah 53:7)

I live for my King because I know what is true. No matter my shame or guilt, I will go willingly to wherever I am called and proclaim His name. He is worthy beyond measure. His death and resurrection have sealed my salvation, it is finished. Tetelestai.

This is why I follow.
