Easter is often perceived as something similar to New Year's, it's when we take personal inventory on where we've fallen short, followed by new moral resolutions. This message is not about your performance review, it's about Jesus' perfect performance which is credited to you. It is finished!
A theme of 2016 was certainly all the fighting, specifically, what we call “right fighting.” We feel compelled to prove ourselves right and others wrong. It’s not there isn’t a fight, there is, and for believers there will continue to be, but right fighting isn’t the right fight.
