Sunday's Thought

"The Resurrection"
 Used by permission
Today is the day we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. It's really a glorious day, don't you think?

Thanks to the sacrifice of Jesus, we're able to have unhindered communion with God, our father.

What does this mean to us as believers? A lot.

1. We have direct access to Jesus Christ and God. With Jesus' death on the cross, he tore the veil that separated us from one on one communion with God. No longer is a priest required to communicate with Him. We've been granted direct access to the Father.

2. We are able to live a victorious life. Jesus came to give us life and life abundantly. Not in the future but now. The life He lived and the death He died gave us the victory.

3.We have a hope in a glorious future. When Jesus died, He did so to set us free. To give us eternal life. We've been given access to Heaven. As long as we accept Jesus as our Lord and savior.

Jesus gave us so much when He willingly laid down His life for us. He destroyed the divide between us and God. It's amazing! He gave us the chance to have a victorious and abundant life right now! Don't neglect this gift. And last, but not least, He gave us hope for a glorious future. All it takes is us to put our trust in Him.

I hope you realize just how precious these gifts are.

He lived a perfect life. No sin. No one else can say the same.

He started a movement that has changed the world. Even 2,000 years later.

He died a death so that your sins can be forgiven and you can join Him in Heaven. Is there anything better?

Take time today to reflect on the gift Christ has given you. If you've been neglecting it, turn and run towards His open arms. Take the gift and live the life you were meant to.
