2018-04-02 - Raised to Life
The angel said to the women, “Don’t be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus, who was nailed to a cross.. He isn’t here! God has raised him to life, just as Jesus said he would. Come, see the place where his body was lying." (Matthew 28:5-6 CEV)
"I'm going to wear a dress for Easter," my 9-year-old informed me. It's great she wanted to dress up and celebrate Jesus' Resurrection. I nodded in approval. She also mentioned wanting to color eggs and hide them. What fun!
Was she getting caught up in our culture's idea of Easter and not the true meaning? I wanted her to also focus on the fact that Jesus suffered on Earth and was resurrected for our benefit. "Jesus died for our sins. He was raised from the dead to make us right with God." (Romans 4:25 NLV)
How awesome to think Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God, interceding for us this very moment. (Romans 8:34) We are someone the Lord treasures. We are no longer a broken vessel. May we stay true to Christ.
