I don’t think Easter should be celebrated just one day of the year. I think it should be a celebration every day. That is, in reference to a risen Savior. I’m completely okay with not hunting for eggs or dying them every single day.
I’m thankful today that Christ died for us and rose from the dead. And I’m thankful He ascended to the Father so that He could leave us His precious Holy Spirit!
himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of
yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has not welcomed this invisible
but clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won’t know what we’re talking
about. But for you who welcome him, in whom he dwells—even though you still
experience all the limitations of sin—you yourself experience life on God’s
terms. It stands to reason, doesn’t it, that if the alive-and-present God who
raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life, he’ll do the same thing in you
that he did in Jesus, bringing you alive to himself? When God lives and
breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered
from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive
as Christ’s!” Romans 8:11 MSG
The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives inside every believer. Wrap your brain around that today!
What will you do differently today, knowing you truly are alive in Christ!? The impossible is now made possible!
I leave you with a favorite of mine.
