Christ our risen savior had been murdered and placed in a desolate tomb. His disciples were overwhelmed by grief and hopelessness as the helplessly watched the video and events. On the third day He kicked the end out of grave gloriously resurrecting ushering in a new dispensation. His disciples excited and energized though the risen Christ was going to deal with the authorities and show them He was boss. Instead He turned the mic over to them and checked out. It was now time for them to arise.
Even today as we celebrate the risen Christ, we must remember that it is time for us to arise. Jesus is working on the Earth today through His people who are standing in His place. His Spirit is working among His people who in turn represent Christ. So today let His resurrection remind you to arise and shine for your light has come
SCRIPTURE READING: Isaiah 60:1-5 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising. ” Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; Your sons shall come from afar, And your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, am always strengthened by Your word everytime I read it. Surely Christ in me, the hope of glory. Hallelujah!
