OnHaving a Mind Like Christ’s
One of the things that makes Easter so enjoyable to me is the ability to read through (or watch) the story of Jesus as it unfolded (Mark 14-16; Matthew 26-28; Luke 22-24; and John 12-20). These events remind me that I was purchased with a great price (1 Corinthians 6:20, Galatians 3:13-14 and 1 Peter 1:18-19) and that Jesus was willing to pay this great price (Romans 5:8). I often have to stop at this point – Jesus who is Divine was willing to step down into an earthly body in order to live a life of righteousness (a life without sin) and then become my personal (yours as well) payment to cover all of my sins past, present and future – so I could in faith and repentance (also given to me by Him) have this applied to my life. I am set free (John 8:36). Free to make new choices, before I was limited to my 5 senses and my own reasoning but now I can add the wisdom, discernment and help of the Lord through prayer to make my decisions. What a different life! A life that is no longer lived alone or dependent only on myself and others but a life that can be in personal relationship with God.
A Few Wonderful Blessings Jesus Made Possible:
- I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).
- I am free (John 8:36).
- I am blessed with every spiritual blessing from the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:3)
- I am chosen by God to be holy and without blame before Him in love (Ephesians 1:4)
- I have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16)
- I have the fruit of the Holy Spirit against which there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23)
- I am privileged of God to be His ambassador (2 Corinthians 5:20)
- I am able to voice His praise (Psalm 66:2)

There are so many other scripture verses that we could add to this list. However, I think you see what I am trying to say – Jesus, because of His great love for us, paid a huge price to give us more than we could think dream or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).
Let’s take time this Easter season to reflect on Jesus’ story and how it can change/has changed our lives for the better.
