Easter is coming! It is almost here, are you ready? Lent is a time to prepair for Easter, a time of purification. Have you prepared?
I don’t think any of us can truly be perspired for such an awesome event. We are just human, we are weak, and broken. How can we be ready?
We all do what we can, we give up and suffer (well not really, we all can do with out the candy bar or pop) we all try do get more spiritual, and we all try to give more to others. But really how much can we do?
We are human, broken and sinners…
But God calls us, he called us by name, he calls us home, are we ready?
No we are not, and we never will be. Even the saints where not ready, none of us are. So why bother?
We bother, we try, because we are called. We are called to Holiness, we are called to perfection, we are called to the Lord, and we answer that call the best we can.
We look at the world around us, and it can be over whelming, but we are still called. We look at our family and see dysfunction, but we are still called, we look at ourselves, and see a broken person, but we are still called.
When God announced the coming of Jesus, he announced it to the lowest of the low, the Shepard’s. He called the outcast to Jesus.
When God showed himself, he showed himself to Moses, a Shepard, he called a no-body.
We are called, I am Called and you are called, we all are called, how do we respond?
