He Has Risen

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
— Matthew 28:6

Jesus had told His followers what would happen- that He would rise again in 3 days. And yet, there they were at the tomb Sunday Morning expecting Him to be there. 

But, God's Word is true and He fulfills it. 

"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55:11

Jesus rose and we have eternal life set before us. 

Jesus paid the price. The grave could not hold THE KING!

Now the choice is ours. We have the choice to live daily feeling discouraged and defeated or like we have a Risen Savior who gave us His Spirit.

"But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you." Romans 8:11

Jesus came to show us the way and to make a way. Let us live in victory. 

To Ponder:

Am I living my life like I have been redeemed by The Victorious and Living Savior? 


Dear Jesus, 

Thank You for your death, burial, and resurrection that gives me the choice of eternal life and a victorious life through You. I choose You. Help me to serve You humbly and to be a living testimony to the world through Your Holy Spirit. 

Give me the spiritual insight to understand the power that I have through your sacrifice to live a victorious life with love. 

In Your Holy Name I pray, amen.
