Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and every Christian has a lot to be thankful for. We know that Jesus died on the cross to pay the debt for every sin committed in the past, the present and in the future and because of Him, believers will spend eternity with our heavenly Father. We worship Jesus because He is alive and that He has risen. We know this in our head but have we really taken it to heart? Have you actually thought about what impact the death and resurrection has on your personal life? Are you living your day to day life as a child of God who has been redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ? Redemption cost Jesus His life. Therefore, our lives should be lived with a purpose and should reflect the new man or woman you have become. You are a vessel that God’s love flows through. You are a light that will dispel darkness where ever you go. You have been set apart to raise the standard against evil all because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The resurrection changed everything. Not only was death defeated but that same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead resides in every person who knows Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. If you are saved, you are no longer just an ordinary person. You are now an extraordinary individual who is able to defeat the enemy of your soul no matter what fiery darts he throws at you. If you believe in the resurrection you have hope. You know that nothing is impossible with God and your eyes have been open to see what the non-believer cannot see. A non-believer is limited by the natural but now the natural becomes the supernatural and that supernatural dimension exists only because of the resurrection.
Where would we be without the resurrection? Jesus Christ rose from the grave and life will never be the same. Make it a point to serve the King of Kings every day. Reach out and touch someone who might not know what you know. There are a lot of hurting people in this world and a smile, a hug or just a ‘hello’ to a stranger might be the game changer for a lonely soul. The resurrection was not for just a certain group of people but it is for every one. Every one deserves to be happy, to have peace and not live in fear. Share your testimony and let God do the rest.
