In today's high-pressure, ultra-competitive, fast-paced culture, it's easy to believe that winning is everything. That if you come in second, you're simply the first loser. Win at all costs. Never surrender.
White Flag (Easter Service)
That's why Easter can be difficult to understand. Because Easter is all about surrender. God surrendered His Son and Jesus surrendered His life. Willingly. Graciously. Compassionately. Selflessly. Lovingly.
As the cross and the empty tomb perfectly demonstrate, the only way to win in every way that counts is to wave the white flag. Jesus surrendered everything for us, and He invites us to trust everything to Him.
