In the midst of the storm that seems to be raging all around us, I think we are all ready for some fresh hope & new life. We’re ready for the circumstances to change. For the situation to be resolved. For a breakthrough to come. And while we wait for that to happen, Jesus offers us a resurrection today!
You see, a resurrection isn’t just a one-time event – it’s a way of life. It’s a willingness to submit & surrender every area of life to Jesus for constant & continual renewal. It’s allowing His finished work to raise up every dead or dying thing in our lives (like our hearts, thoughts, attitudes, relationships, beliefs, priorities, etc.). A resurrection isn’t about God changing the circumstances – it’s about God changing US. It’s about experiencing the new life He offers regardless of the circumstance around us. And so, as we head into Easter week, we are reminded that Jesus came & laid down His life so that we might live. He died on the cross AS us & rose to new life FOR us so that we could have a resurrection life today.
It’s time for a resurrection in Jesus’ name.
