Risen with Christ
On Sunday April 4 we celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It is through His resurrection that we too are risen with Christ. We become new creations in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), when all the old ways in our lives can be done away with, and when things can now become new, through the transforming power of Jesus Christ. Colossians 3:1-3, “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died with, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” We are endued with power from above (Acts 1:8) that helps us to seek and live a life pleasing to God. And not only that, but we are guaranteed a life that is eternal. Peter says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:3-4). How blessed we are to be children of God, saved from eternal damnation. Thank you Jesus!!
