The angel said to the women, . . . "Jesus, who was crucified, . . . is not here, he has risen, just as he said." Matthew 28: 5-6
We are going to celebrate in a week's time. Jesus' resurrection gives us the power to live a new life, starting now. If we want to live with perseverance and joy rather than drivenness and despair, we have only to look into the eyes of the Lord who triumphed over death.
How has the resurrection affected the way you live your life - the choices you have made?
Take a few moments and consider your life at this moment - what it is and what you want it to be. Write out the words, "Here I am, Lord, Use me." Then write down whatever you feel God wants you to do with the rest of your life. Finally, write a statement of commitment to follow him wherever he leads.
Just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4
