As a speaker whose topic is making your mark, in the corporate world I do not mention the ultimate mark of all time which was made at the cross. However, my lessons in making your mark, sharing your magic, and treating people well all stem from the golden rule, Christ’s second greatest commandment: Love your neighbor as yourself. God is love, and because of Him we are capable of loving each other.
This Easter I count my blessings as though it were Thanksgiving: an amazing family, wonderful friends, a great career, a home, food on my table, health, this incredible country, and the list goes on and on. I think of those less fortunate than myself and remember the best hope the world has is the hope found in Christ Jesus. As my pastor stated in his Easter message, “Without Him we have no way to deal with our sin.” I am eternally grateful to Christ who died, was buried, rose again, ascended into Heaven, and offers us eternal life when we invite Him into our lives. The mark Christ made while on earth was the ultimate act of selflessness and love and will echo throughout eternity. “By His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)
