How to have a heart ready for Easter 

I gave up coordinating family outfits for Easter a few years back. I realized that for many years I thought about what we would wear more than  I thought about the fact that Jesus was alive. 

Do you really think he cares about what we wear that morning to church? 

“People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

He sees straight through our best dressed faces and outfits, straight to the core of our souls. Jesus cares far more about the condition of your heart than the clothes hanging on your body. 

So who’s up for our second  annual Easter bible reading challenge?!?! 

Last year we read the book of John. This year, we will be reading the book of Mark. It was so powerful to read the events of Jesus’ life, miracles, obedience and resurrection leading up to Easter. 

This year, we will start reading Mark on April 1st, reading one chapter a day until we read the last chapter, all about the resurrection, on Easter! Even if you read the last chapter after church, a big lunch, Easter egg hunt, and the kids go to bed that night, you’ll exhale a sigh of praise with a full heart after reflecting on Jesus’ life and words the weeks leading up to this sacred day. 

Let’s get back to the basics and read the gospel of Mark together! Are you in? Comment below & let me know you’re joining us!
