Most of us have experienced the anxiety and confusion of being disoriented. It may have been coming out of anesthesia, the aftermath of divorce, or the loss of a loved one. Have you ever been unsure about who you are, why you’re alive, and what happens after you die? Many people put lots of effort into finding the answers to these questions, but still feel disoriented in life; like there’s something missing. Easter has the ability to reorient our lives and reveal what we are missing for all who would open their hearts to God’s astounding answer.
Any rescue requires the willingness for the person in trouble to believe they are in grave danger and a choice to let go of their answers and submit to another for help. Jesus came to rescue all people from grave, danger and death, and yet, when He road in to Jerusalem on a donkey the people pled for Him to rescue them their own way and not His. They missed His rescue attempt but we don’t have to make the same mistake today.
