What I Read Today:
1 Corinthians 15; Mark 3; Ezekiel 17; Proverbs 2; 2 Samuel 17
On this last day of May, I think it’s fitting to hear the words of Paul in 2 Corinthians 15:3-5:
“3For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, 4and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, 5and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.” NRSV
The past few months have been crazy. We have dealt with lockdowns, shutdowns, and all manner of doom and gloom. But our God promises us that we always have hope! We still have Joy! Nothing can take away the belief that a Christian has in his heart.
We can lose jobs, homes, and bank accounts, but our God still walked out of the tomb!
Our government can take freedoms, but it cannot take our hope!
Our loved ones may pass away, we may become ill, and illness may cause havoc, but we know that no matter what, our Savior will be waiting for us when we cross into eternity!
What better way to end this month than to remind ourselves that we worship a risen Lord! Jesus walked out of the tomb and left it empty. While others worship those who have died, our God is alive and promises to return!
As we go through our day this day, remember that Jesus is Alive! Jesus is our King! Jesus is Lord!
