If you are stuck in the wasteland of regret, hear the words of Isaiah this Easter:
Forget the former things; do not dwell in the past.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
There is always hope for the future in Jesus. He is always enough. So many of us live half-lives, and I have certainly lived this at times these past few years, but His offer is life in all fullness. And I can testify to that too.
Yet we know the cost of sin. we see it at the cross. The life of one innocent, perfect, sweet, saviour, for your selfishness and for mine.
The cost was always too high.
Jesus, thank you for Easter.
