“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
Matthew 28:6-7 NIV
Read: Matthew 28:1-10
Look up! JESUS is looking down upon you. HE is risen. JESUS returned to Heaven so that HE may come again in fulfillment of HIS scriptural promises. HE told us we are not to know the hour and day, but whenever the time, it can’t be too soon for me.
For many, today is just another day. But, for true believers, today is a day of joy. We know we are in celebration of our SAVIOUR’S reign on earth and being taken up into Heaven to spend eternity with our loving TRINITY.
Are your priorities straight? While families gather for a holiday of picnics in the park, Easter egg hunts, lots of food, games and more, what is the most important thing for you to do today?
Today is the day of celebration. Is JESUS your reason for celebrating today? Before the picnic and activities, give JESUS HIS time. Start your day with your Bible. Then, spend time in worship and thanksgiving in a local church with other believers. Praise GOD! JESUS is risen.
GOD gave you free will. Use it wisely today. Gather in HIS name. Give your heart to JESUS!
Today’s prayer: “LORD JESUS, Thank YOU for keeping YOUR promises. I know of YOUR resurrection and of YOUR soon return. I will live for YOU. Amen.”
