One practice over the centuries for Christian families has been to read one of the four resurrection accounts out loud to the family every Sunday. It strengthens the soul to hear these wonderful words again and again.
* Holy God, Your word is a two-edged sword – Please cut through the dross of the world in our lives, the hardness of our hearts, so that we would be Your people in spirit and in truth.
“Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here.”
HE HAS RISEN!
These are the wonderful words that we hold tight and remember each week as we meet together on the Lord’s day.
He has risen – He is not still on the cross and is not in the tomb!
The hold of death was done away with, and instead we God’s people have been gifted, as we read in Romans 6,
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
In Christ we have eternal life, not death.
That is the good news we are to bring to the nations, to those around us.
* Mighty God,
Your plan was always Jesus, the Lamb slain for us.
Through Him we have life, and life to the full – Thank You!
Please help us to be bold and courageous in telling people about this wonderful good news of Jesus.
