He Lives

Happy Easter!

As we celebrate this season, the evidence of Jesus’s resurrection is not just a historical fact, but a living reality that infuses our lives. As the beloved hymn goes, “You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.”

Ephesians 2:10 reminds us, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” This transformation is the essence of the Easter message.

The presence of Jesus changes us profoundly. He is alive, actively engaging with us, and His influence extends to our hearts, minds, and souls. He is continuously working miracles, healing our past wounds, renewing our spirit, and guiding us to paths we never imagined possible.

Because He lives, so do we. We can live with the assurance that He is always with us, as promised in Hebrews 13:5, “For God has said, ‘I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.’” His power knows no bounds, and His focus is always on His people – to save, heal, deliver, and guide.

This Easter, let’s reflect on what Jesus’s resurrection means for us. He conquered death so we could live victoriously. Our faith is rekindled as we remember that He lives!

Believing in His resurrection empowers us to hope for healing in our relationships, peace in our minds, deliverance from struggles, and the achievement of the impossible. For “My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.” (Galatians 2:20). Christ’s life within us is transformative.

This Easter, I encourage you to:

  1. Be Thankful: Gratitude draws us closer to God and gives us a healthier perspective. This season, let’s be grateful for His life and the hope it brings.
  2. Reach Out to Others: Easter is a perfect opportunity to invite others to church. Your invitation could have an eternal impact. Remember, many are open to attending church during Easter and Christmas.
  3. Celebrate with Others: Easter is a time for togetherness. Cherish these moments with loved ones, as they strengthen bonds and create lasting memories.

As we celebrate Easter, let Jesus’s resurrection life shine through us. May His life be a beacon of hope and transformation in your life.

Happy Easter, and may the reality of Jesus alive in us guide our every step!
