Did you know that on resurrection Sunday, Jesus didn't just rise from the dead, but He also descended into the depths to conquer death and the grave?
By doing so, He vanquished Satan's reign and emerged with unprecedented power, giving us the ability to rise and bridge the gap to reunite with God. This new connection is so profound that through the keys in Jesus' hands, we are granted the opportunity to be reconciled with God once again!
Those who crave righteousness will never go empty-handed, for they are blessed. As Matthew 5:6 affirms, I have come to realize that there is no greater foundation than experiencing and acknowledging the goodness of the Lord. His abundant grace and mercy towards humankind, including you and me, are unmatched.
Are you curious about what Jesus actually defeated? Look no further, because I've got the answer: sin.
And if you're anything like me and initially didn't understand the significance of this momentous day, take a second to reflect on the fact that you're still standing here today because of God's amazing grace.
He sent His one and only son to DIE and RISE for YOU. One of my all-time favorite scriptures is John 3:16, which is not only easy to remember and recite, but it also offers an incredibly powerful invitation to start a brand new life with Christ.
Boldly challenge yourself today to turn to Jesus and leave behind the sins that have kept you bound. His word is brimming with powerful, influential, sweet, wealthy, and helpful ingredients that will set you free. So why waste your time on anything else? Give Him a chance and witness the transformative power of His love for yourself.
Boldly recite this prayer wherever you may be.
Father in Heaven,
I come before you today broken and humbled by my sins. I recognize my need for Your forgiveness and grace. I confess that I have sinned and turned away from You. I ask for Your mercy and for You to save me from my sins.
I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for my sins and rose again. I accept Him as my Savior and turn from my sins, trusting in Him to save me.
Help me to live a life that is pleasing to You. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I may live according to Your will. Guide me in the path of righteousness and keep me from temptation.
In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Try Jesus and witness your hunger transform into an insatiable craving for Him! I'm eagerly anticipating the fulfillment of your divine destiny and the Lord nourishing your spirit.
