Love you all, praying for you.
Happy Easter Week! I always thought of Easter Week as last week. But that was Palm Sunday Week, Passion Week. He rose from the grave on the first day of the week. That makes this week Easter Week. Resurrection Week. Nothing will ever be the same again! His death and resurrection changed everything. This week should be totally different! And every week from now on should be changed forever! We often don’t realize what He just did! And that means from now on… He not only saved us from… He saves us to…
So quick before and after: Before: we were dead in our sin, slaves to it, doomed to eternity apart from God – a place of outer darkness. No way out. After: We are now saved FROM hell. (Eternal separation from God). AND we are saved from sin controlling us. What we used to do and be – we are now set free! But we were also saved TO: eternity with God in Heaven. Where there is no sin, no darkness, no sorrow or tears, where trees bear fruit every month, and the streets are paved with gold! (Think about that – what men give their lives to acquire down here, up there… it’s like gravel, it’s pavement.)
And we are also saved TO: Victory over sin! - to walk in the Spirit, overcoming every day what we used to be bound by! (the desires of the flesh, our old nature, which only give pleasure for a moment, but in the end are bitter destruction and separation.) Praise God! We are now saved TO life and life more abundantly, to knowing and walking in His purpose for us – which will yield true satisfaction and great fruit in this earthly life – and ridiculous rewards for all of eternity.
This Easter Week is the first week of resurrection. It’s what Jesus did! And it’s the life He wants us to live. Praying that you will surrender your day and your week to His plan. That PiVAT and PRISM will help you walk in this resurrected life that Jesus bought for you – with His blood. That in your Daily Call – you will overcome by the testimony of His Resurrection – and the Resurrected life you now live in Him. That every week from this week forward would be undeniable evidence of what He did on the cross - and that resurrection that sets you free!
Love you all,
