For Christians all over the world, today marks the beginning of the most important week of the year. John Denver's lyrics to "Sunshine On My Shoulder" evoke a happy sensation as we feel the sun touching our skin. For me, it makes me think of the One who created the sun...the One who sent His only Son on a mission that would forever change our destiny.
Each sunset reminds me our time on this planet is short. Take a moment today to connect with nature. Listen to the birds singing their melodies. See how the sun lights up the world around you. Meditate on the Son this week. Think about what He did, how He sacrificed His life for you so you can live forever. On your darkest days, this Son will carry you on His shoulders.
