Easter

The tomb is empty because He is risen!

Hi friend and welcome back to the blog. Happy Resurrection Day!!


I apologize there was no post last week. With it been Holy Week, I pray you were flooded with the Word of God and that you were able to spend some time in His presence reflecting on all Jesus did to save you and me.


Today's post will be short; but I still wanted to share the following verses with you. I pray that as you celebrate with friends and family, you make some time to do some reflection about the work Christ did for us on the cross and what that truly means for us.


Romans‬ ‭6‬:‭5‬-‭14 [ESV] ”For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.“


A couple weeks ago, I mentioned how the Lord began a new chapter in my life a few years ago. Honestly since then, Easter has taken on a different meaning. To me it's a celebration of our resurrection in Christ as well.


Friends, we're no longer dead in sin; but alive in Him. The devil no longer has the dominion over us because Christ is our righteousness and we're victorious!


Let's pray...

Dear God, thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Thank you for defeating the enemy and rising back again. As we celebrate Resurrection Day today, may we be grateful for what you did and the price you paid. May we live victorious lives in Christ and may we be used as instruments of righteousness. In Jesus name.
