St. Patrick’s Day

I love St. Patrick’s Day.

I don’t drink green beer or believe in leprechauns or 4-leaf clovers or pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.

But I love the story of how the grace and mercy of Jesus compelled a man who had everything ripped from him and who was sent to another country for the purpose of being sacrificed to the gods, to go back to the place of his greatest pain so he could tell the people who hurt him the most about how much Jesus loves them. I love how that one choice changed the trajectory of a nation. Patrick saw the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. He saw redemption. He saw freedom, both for himself and for the nation that had oppressed him.

Whether you know it or not, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is celebrating the grace and mercy of Jesus. You’re celebrating the freedom and life that Jesus gives.
