Revelation 1:18 “I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.”
As we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ today, we are rejoicing about the rescue from sin and death, and the restoration of the relationship between God and man. But I want to you to look beyond the miraculous event and focus on two main issues. One is that Jesus Christ was raised from death and He lives forever. That is a settled matter. Second is the question you have to settle for yourself: does Christ live in you? Is Christ’s light shining through you and visible around you so much that darkness cannot stand your presence? Is Christ’s life being lived through you so that men can see and experience His good works through you? Can He manifest His power through you in tangible ways? Is Christ’s love being expressed through you so you can love the unlovable; that you can look into people and have compassion on them instead of looking down on people and despising them. Jesus Christ is alive. But can you show with proof that He is alive in you? That is the food for thought from today’s word of encouragement!
