It is easy enough to say Jesus died for us. But to stop and let it seep into our souls that Jesus died for us … for us … this we don’t do very often. We don’t stop to think about the why or what it took. We don’t like to think about the pain and suffering or the sacrifice. But to understand the gift of Easter, we need to understand the gift given for us during this week from Palm Sunday through Good Friday. So, the invitation is to dare to walk this week with Jesus and to live for the first time or anew into the love of God for us.
