Alive in Christ
God has provided Easter hope from the beginning of time.
“and many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake… (Daniel 12:1)
Isaiah spoke of physical resurrection:
[Y]our dead shall live, their bodies will rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light and the earth will give birth to the dead.” (Isaiah 26:19)
[I]it was the Lord’s will to crush and cause Him to suffer, that though the Lord makes His life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the lord will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied by his righteous servant and justify many, and He will bear the iniquities” (Isaiah 52:10 – 11)
The resurrection is the most significant event in the history of the world - it changed everything! When the disciples finally recognized the Resurrected Jesus, they realized this is truly an uprising of HOPE, armed with LOVE; an uprising that shouts a joyful promise of HOPE, LIFE and PEACE. The Lord has risen indeed!
EASTER Blessing to all as we celebrate our HOPE. Let us be alive in Christ as we joyfully live our call.
