At the Empty Tomb
“He Has Been Raised!"
Our God is mighty! Even death could not hold him back! This very same God is present in our daily lives. When you are walking into an unknown situation, do you expect to see emptiness, pain or death? Or are you open to seeing the unexpected, maybe even a miracle? Today we celebrate the fact that Jesus rose from death for each of us, paying the ultimate price for our sins and offering us life, abundant and everlasting!
What "dead" areas in your life do you want to be given new life? Can you give those things to God and ask for His blessing? What is it that's holding you back from being an "Easter person?" Ask God to let the news of Jesus' resurrection change you, your attitude, and your relationships. Remember how God showed his love for us and go and live a life filled with joy!
Prayer of Praise and Adoration...
All powerful and loving God, God of miracles, I praise you for your gift of new life. Today, I will be mindful of all of the ways that you have made the miracle of new life present in me. Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Hallelujah and Amen!
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you. I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 26:36
