Last Saturday we were invited to a cook-out with a large group of missionaries based here in Santiago. It was a great time and we met many new friends. One of the ladies I met was Mary Jo. She grew up here in Chile as a missionary kid and now she and her husband live here as missionaries. She leads a small bible study and invited me to come.
I went today and met a neat group of Chilean ladies. It was a new experience especially since it was all in Spanish. I think I got the gist of the conversation because I knew where they were reading from and could follow along in the bible. They were studying the suffering servant passages in Isaiah which foretell about Jesus’s coming. I got more out of it than I thought possible because I had to concentrate so much, and because of the focus on what Jesus did for us as He suffered on the cross ( Isaiah 52:13-53:12).
However, we must remember the good news- His Resurrection! Luke 24:5-6 “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!” He has risen indeed!
I hope you all have an Easter that allows you time to really meditate and reflect on what our God has done. He gives us all the opportunity to be adopted by Him into His family if we will just submit and accept His gift of salvation.
