By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.
(1 Corinthians 6:14, NIV)
During Easter, Jesus is the Life of the Father,
overcoming death and sin forever.
Consider the power of His Life in your life.
He became a helpless infant,
so He doesn’t recoil at your weakness.
He wrapped Himself in shame, rejection, and homelessness,
so He isn’t offended by your lowliness.
He poured Himself out in teaching and healing,
so He warmly embraces you in your ignorance and need.
He begged forgiveness for His torturers.
so He will not abandon you in your sin.
He silently accepted all the abuse His enemies could dish out,
so He will not be frightened away by anything you might do.
The Life that spoke all life into existence
could not be defeated by death—
not in Christ and
not in you.
This Life took the worst that evil could give and
emerged the Conqueror.
You have absolutely nothing to fear.
The unconquerable Life is now your life.
“Your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:3, NIV)
“Death has been swallowed up in victory.” (1 Corinthians 15:54, NIV)
