GLORY TO GOD! CHRIST IS RISEN!
Oh friends! Is there any greater reason to celebrate? Hope in eternal life was made sure that Resurrection morning. The Father’s glorious power was fully manifest as Christ was raised from the dead to conquer once and for all the fear of death. Now all who believe in Him will also be raised from death to eternal life in Him AND with Him. Hallelujah!!! Thank you Father! Thank you Lord Jesus! Thank you Holy Spirit!!!!
This Resurrection Sunday, as you celebrate the death & glorious resurrection of our Lord and Savior with family and friends, may the power of that Risen Life fill you anew. The apostle Paul spoke of that in Philippians 3:10 when he said, “I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection…” But, unfortunately we often neglect to remember the second part of the verse—”and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.” We love the idea of sharing in Christ’s resurrection, but our flesh surely hates the suffering part—the death to self, the laying down of our will to say, “Father, not my will, but thine be done.”
We know dear ones, that some of you are suffering some very painful and difficult circumstances and afflictions in your lives. And it isn’t easy waiting for resurrection day. But Praise God, in Jesus, we have that resurrection power to get us through all things as overcomers in the here and now. May Christ be exalted and our Father glorified as we trust Him in all things, as He works them together for our good! Have a blessed Resurrection celebration!!!
In His Glorious, Everlasting Name,
