Today there are some of us that celebrate
A day in which our savior rose from being dead
A death that signified salvation for so many
Yet do we forget more of the meaning
His love for us was something to be exemplified
Today is about his resurrection, remember why he died
It was not only his father’s love, but his love as well
His love for his father, and his love for those his father loved
It is said the greatest form of flattery is imitation
Yet why do we not emulate that when it comes to this man
He has shown us the true way to walk and to love, outside of ourselves
Yet we still show love even now selfishly, focusing on what we want more
Even he did not want to die, destined to do it since the formation of the world
He did not want to die
He understood he needed to die
Understood what it meant in doing so not only in his father’s will
but in his adoration for those his father loved
Today take the time out to ask yourself, could you do the same?
On both parts, could you sacrifice your only for the salvation of others?
Would you sacrifice yourself for the salvation of others?
What would you want him to do as your only child?
In our selfish way of thinking, we would want him to show his love
By obeying us to not die, to stay here, to remain by our side
I, for one am glad that he provided that sacrifice
I am excited that he rose on this day
I show my adoration and love towards him consistently
by doing my best to show love in the same way.
