As I was getting the clean clothes out of the dryer, I was thinking, I like to get the clothes out of the dryer right away, they are ready to be fold, and they are nice and warm, specially in winter time, I live in Ohio and I am always cold.
In the same way It came to my mind, this is how the Lord want us to get ready our hearts for Easter. We have to ask the Lord to clean our hearts from all sin, we have to ask our Lord and Savior to wash our hearts with his Precious Blood that HE shed on the cross for us for the forgiveness of our sins. Would you put dirty clothes on Easter Sunday? NO! We want to look our best, and we want our children to look the best too. We can’t come on Easter morning with a dirty heart, full of sin, the same way we like to get beautiful clothes for Easter; that’s the way our Lord wants our hearts to look like, Beautiful inside and Beautiful outside, clean. We have to come to the Lord with a rejoicing heart, Because he save us from our sins, He shed His blood on Calvary to wash our sins away to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. He defeat death when he rose again from the death on the third day, and came out triumphed and victorious. Dear Heavenly Father, I ask you with all of my heart that you will get our hearts ready for Easter Sunday, that we will be able to appreciate the sacrifice that you did on the cross for us to Save us from our iniquities and our sin, because we are sinful by nature. I pray to you with all of my heart. Amen Lili Gonzalez-Zarle
