He is not here; He has risen, as He said [He would do]. Come, see the place where He lay. -Matthew 28:6
Jesus was crucified, but He is not on the cross any longer. He is seated in heavenly places with His Father and He's also lifted us out of the ordinary, out of negative thinking, guilt and shame. He took our sin to the cross to defeat it. It has no power over us--and now we can live in the joy of His resurrection. Because Jesus lives, we can overcome every challenge that the world presents to us. We can live on the resurrection side of the cross.
Joyce Meyer's devotional Love Out Loud
Because He Lives
God sent His Son...they called Him Jesus...He came to love, and heal, and forgive... He lived and died to buy my pardon...An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.
Because He lives...I can face tomorrow...Because He lives all fear is gone...Because I know...He holds the future...and life is worth the living just because He lives!
William J. Gaither
May God continually surround you with His choice blessings today and everyday.
