A Warm Thought to Brighten Your Day
In the devotional book, Streams in the Desert, Abbot Benjamin Vaughan writes of the compelling truth which accompanies the realization of Jesus’ resurrection:
A well-known preacher was once in his study writing an Easter sermon when this thought gripped him: “My Lord is living!” With excitement he jumped up, paced the floor, and began repeating to himself, “Christ is alive…He is not the great ‘I was’ but the great ‘I am.'”
Christ is not only a fact but a living fact. He is the glorious truth of Easter Day! We believe in a risen Lord, so do not look to the past to worship only at His tomb. Look above and within to worship the Christ who lives. Because He lives, we live.
How true! Think about it…The fact of the resurrection was a game-changer for the early disciples even as it is for us as the present day Christ-followers. In fact, the truth of the Risen Lord is just as important and transforming today as it was on Resurrection Day. We have just as much reason to wake up each day and shout, “He is risen!” There is no corner of our lives which should remain untouched by an application of the profound truth that we serve a Risen Savior-He’s in the world today!
So enjoy today as you bask in the sunlight of the hope and victory which is yours through the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Amen and Amen!
