He is Risen…..He is Risen indeed! The reality of the resurrection is always observed in the way we live our lives. If someone were to ask, “So what is the big deal about Easter?” The answer comes in watching your life and mine.
There is a huge difference in the life of a person who is living in the light of the resurrection then one who is not. On the day after that first Easter the disciples were waiting for and experiencing the presence of Jesus, hanging on his every word, learning from him and preparing for the future.
When we live the resurrection life we are doing the same things. We first of all are ‘waiting” for Jesus. Our Lord wants to speak to us today, to meet with us and walk through this day with us. Wait for his lead, do not get out in front of him or lag behind. The prophet Isiah reminds us:
but those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31
From that first Easter on, everything changed. New life was available. Jesus promised that He would send the Holy Spirit to live in us and Life would never be the same again.
Just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. – Romans 6:4b
The same is true for us…we no longer have to walk in fear, discouragement, hopelessness, greed or envy! We can walk in Confidence today knowing that we are Blessed Children of God and nothing can happen today that God and I can’t handle!
Have a fantastic day! I am praying for you and your family. IF there is something that we can do for you or your family please let us know and remember as you go through this day…HE IS RISEN…HE IS RISEN INDEED!
