I love Resurrection Day! And I love the Easter season! This weekend we again celebrate Jesus Christ, raised from the dead.
Just a few days before the resurrection, Jesus’ followers experienced some of the darkest days in all of history. Jesus had died. Their hope for a positive future seemed to be gone forever. But Resurrection Sunday was on its way!
Let’s get personal about Resurrection Day. The Bible tells us; The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, He will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. (Romans 8:11)
The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you and in me today. He gives life and resurrection power to our earthly bodies. But this does not mean that there will be no difficulties in life.
If you are going through a difficult dark season in your life at this moment, focus on the cross, and on the resurrection that is soon to come. Remember, without a cross, there is no resurrection.
Our Jesus is alive! And He is alive in you today!
