Easter is a short time away. Join us in preparation by looking at what Easter really means. Each week on Wednesday leading up to Easter we will post a brief, but powerful reminder.
Easter is a time to remember that He rose on the third day. Death did not get the final word. It is also a time to take ownership of the power we have gained through His resurrection. The apostles were living proof of the power of Christ. His life was the example, but His death and resurrection were the power that would transcend into them and now us. We cannot forget about this power that is readily available to us each day. Let us be reminded each day of His resurrection power in us.
Acts 4:33 NIV
God’s word is living and waiting for us to draw from it like a well. He foretold the sacrifice of Christ in the Old Testament and He reiterates it to us in the New Testament. The world would have us become distracted by all the things we are doing and are trying to accomplish. It is by staying in His word that we can be reminded of Christ's sacrifice for us and how He has paid our debt to sin. His is risen, thus there is nothing we have to do to earn our way to Him. On Easter we are reminded to take a collective look into God’s word to remember the power we stand in. We must not forget that this power is ready for us to stand in each and every moment.
Luke 24:6-7 NIV
Considerations for your planner:
- How are you standing in the power of Christ today? Write down how you draw from Him each and every day.
- What does the power of His resurrection mean to you? Spend a few moments in prayer and write what comes to you.
