Isaiah 43:19a (NIV) See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
Whether majestic and formal or simple and down-to-Earth, the meaningful Easter church services are over for another year. All over the world, millions of Resurrection sermons were preached, hopefully millions of dollars given to help those in need, and stores are holding post-Easter sales.
So in the lives of those of us who are Christians, now what?
How will the Resurrection affect our lives, or will it? What in your life needs a resurrection? A new relationship with a family member or friend? A new, more heartfelt worship of God? A new attitude about work? A new ministry with which to be involved? A new exercise regimen, to be a better steward of the body God gave you? I encourage you to ask God to show you in what ways He wants to do "a new thing" in your life.
We can all live Resurrection Lives, with God's help.
