“Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen!” Luke 24:5,6
I pray this Easter morning finds you rejoicing in the knowledge that our Savior is alive. We do not serve a powerless God. No! We serve a Savior who conquered death and all the powers of hell to rise triumphant. Because of that we have the certainty of eternal life when we accept Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins on the cross. It is a free gift with no strings attached. And He offers this gift to every person. Have you accepted it?
Jesus isn’t a go-with-the–flow kind of person. No, He came to the earth to shake things up. And He did. He healed the sick. He cast out demons. He talked to a Samaritan woman and companioned with tax collectors. He took a whip and cleared out the moneychangers from the temple. And He opened the truth to the Gentiles, Jews, Greek, slave, and free—in short anyone who would believe in Him.
And Jesus still does all those things today. He wants to be our everyday lives. He changes us, encourages us, heals us, admonishes us and loves us. He brings hope to even the darkest of situations and times.
Wherever this Easter day finds you, I hope it finds you rejoicing in our Savior. Happy Easter!
