He is Alive! Am I?

If I can’t get excited today about my faith then I might struggle to ever get excited.

Jesus is Alive!! The tomb is empty. He has risen from the grave, death has been defeated. Within this act is everything that my faith is attached to. After all, it takes faith to believe this and then faith to live because of it.

Jesus died so I might live. He became nothing so that I could become something. He was abandoned by God so I never would be.

Let’s live a life that is full of life, the life of Christ.

The resurrection power is in me. That same power that raised Christ from the dead is in me.

I remember a song from years ago by Steve Camp that had the line ‘Jesus rose from the grave, we can’t even get out of bed’. No excuses, the power of God in us is enough.

Why can’t we live like this every day. Full of resurrection power that makes us an overcomer of all things, not in own strength but in the strength of the one who was raised.

Go and make disciples. Jesus is alive, His resurrection power is ours, so let’s respond to the call and GO.

Now it’s our turn. The good news of Jesus that we celebrate at Easter is ours not to keep secret but to share.

It’s not easy but with the power of the Holy Spirit working in us and through us, then all things become possible.

I pray that I will live well for all that Jesus has done for me. He is my all. Let my life reflect that. Help me Jesus to be all that you desire for me to be. Amen.

  1. amen – Jesus carried his cross (our cross) and all that is required of us to be part of what he did – is believe! I’m like you – and I feel that if we can’t get excited about our favorite team winning the game – the championship – then what on earth could we ever get excited about?
