Loving Jesus

With the Easter season upon us, as a Christian Scientist I have been giving extra thought to why I love Jesus.

And with that in mind, I’d like to share here, for my readers, this thoughtful piece by a colleague of mine – Tim Mitchinson from Naperville, Illinois – who expressed it so well, sharing how he has found his love for Jesus to be very practical.

Writing in the Peoria Journal Star, he says succinctly – and knowing Tim,  sincerely – “I love Jesus.

He continues, “…I stand in wonderment of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection as actual events that have great meaning for all of us today.”

He shares how he has found meaning from this in personal growth and in service,  becoming more forgiving, with healing bringing a return to health.

His last paragraph summarizes it all very nicely, and his article is a wonderful “read” at this Easter season, which I heartily recommend.
