the Power of Easter
This Easter, I am wrapping my mind around these two concepts:
“The cross was Jesus’ best day because He did the will of His Father, because He glorified and pleased the Father through His obedience, and because He finished and fulfilled the work the Father sent Him to do. The cross was His best day because it meant the day of salvation, the day of redemption, and the day of our eternal hope.” Roy Lessin, What was Jesus’ Best Day?
“Imagine, the measuring stick of the power promised to us is the same strength that raised the corpse of Jesus Christ from the dead!” Jim Cymbala, Spirit Rising
Because of Jesus, we have Easter. We have the counter culture example of Jesus’ love for us and His Father. His obedience that led to a horrific death. And we have the supernatural, unlimited power of the Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from a dead man living in us.
I want to grasp the simplicity and the depth of Easter. I want to grasp it so tightly that I can’t help but share it. I want to grasp it so that I will live humbly in His presence every moment.
