What if you knew....

What if you knew the exact moment of your death and exactly how you were going to die, how would you approach it? Would you try to avoid it, would you run away? Or would you accept it and try to make what time on this earth you have left to mean something. I won't even try to imagine what it must have been like for Jesus on that Palm Sunday so long ago, even amidst the cheering crowds and the loud hosannas he knew what was going to happen and yet he continued on. He knew he had to continue to complete the work he began so we all would be saved. There is a line in a song we sang today that goes "amazing love, how can it be that you my Lord would die for me". When we give of ourselves with no thought but only to do good with the life God gave us in whatever time he has given us. We touch people every day in one way or another, make each moment count, change a life. What if you knew..Jesus did, and he gave his life for you.
