He is Risen!
Read Colossians 3, Psalm 42 April 20 Seeking the Living
“Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?” Luke 24:5
The resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the greatest happening in the history of the World. Because He is risen, we who believe can have confidence that we too have risen to live in the power, presence and victory of the living Lord. By the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit which is given to all true believers we can die to living in the power of the flesh, the world and the devil, and live in the newness of the fullness of life in the Spirit of the living Lord.
As we die to self and become alive in Christ and seek Him, we will grow in all of the blessings promised to those who abide in Him. We will have Jesus’ friendship, His Joy, the awareness of His love and the love of others, and answered prayers. We can lead lives pleasing to Him and fruitful in every good work.
There is absolutely no excuse for continuing to live in the dead end road of sin and death. We have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. We have been crucified with Christ and resurrected into the newness of life in Him and with Him, and our lives will reflect the transformation that has taken place.
As we seek the living Lord and to be conformed to His image by the life changing power of the Holy Spirit, the fear and terror of death is replaced by the certainty of living forever under the shelter of God’s wings of grace and promises of an even better and more glorious life to come.
Let us never again live in sin among the dead, but always in the power and presence of the living Lord.
Father, help me to stay out of living in bondage to death and to live in the fullness of my living Lord. In Jesus’ name,Amen
“I thirst for God, the living God. When can I come and stand before him?”
Psalm 42:2 NLT
“If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.”
