This morning, I didn’t know if I would be sharing anything on this page, due to this being Easter Sunday; but as I was beginning to listen to some music and read Luke 24; God began to speak to me about the greatest hope that we could ever hope to experience in this life…and that hope is not only found through Jesus death on the cross; but even more through His resurrection.
Can you image what must have taken place at that time; for to me, it was not only a time when Jesus displayed love and forgiveness to us all; but this time also became a battle between good and evil…and as Satan took Jesus through one of the greatest moments of temptation; it was his aim to keep Jesus from going to the cross.
Even though Jesus eventually walked that lonely path to the cross, after overcoming these difficult moments of temptation; Satan must have felt that this still would be his victory, as Jesus’ crucifixion eventually led Him to His death; but to Satan’s surprise…a time did come, when Jesus overcame death and evil and arose triumphantly and victoriously over the grave.
As I’ve been thinking on these thoughts this morning, I would say that this is the greatest hope that we could ever receive in this life…and not only at Easter; but all year long.
When you feel as if all hope is gone…and you feel as if your life will only end in defeat, just remember that this same Christ that rose from the dead, has the power to rise up within you and breathe new life within you. In I Corinthians 15:55-57 we read… “Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?" 56) The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57) But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ.”
Remember one thing, as we close this time together; nothing defeated Christ at the cross, so nothing will ever be able to defeat you in your life, when that same Jesus resides within you…Amen!!
