I know I'm a bit late when it comes to saying happy easter, but... HAPPY EASTER anyways!!!
But, what is Easter about really? We mostly all think about candy and eggs and bunnies, but, the true essence of Easter isn't about sweets, it's about our Redeemer and Savior, Jesus Christ.
This past Sunday I had the treat of going to my cousin's ward and be with my family for a little while. Their sacrament meeting consisted of many musical numbers. My family participated in these numbers, but there was one song that my aunt sang that stuck with me. The song was basically talking about how Jesus was like our shepherd, and how we were sheep, and how he guided us and helped us.
To tell you the truth I can't remember the name of it, or much if the tune because it was a fairly new arrangement, but I felt the spirit so strongly when listening to it and this one line hit me, setting tears in my eyes.
Come under his arm...
Many people don't know about the great sacrifice that he did for all of us. He suffered, he suffered through all of the consequences or our sins, for our wrongdoings. Why would he do this? Why would the most perfect person who ever walked the earth choose to suffer for a world practically flooded with sinners.
Because he loves us.
He suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane because he loves us, he died on the cross because he loves us, he did all of this because he loves us, he wants us to return to live with him and our Heavenly Father.
Think about that for a moment.
And so the lyrics, come under his arm, come as no surprise. He wants to comfort us, even if he isn't physically there with you, through his atonement. Through Christ, you can do all things.
