THE DEAD COME TO LIFE-my understanding of Easter


As I reflect on easter and its significance,I am personally grateful for Jesus Christ He not only died for me but also died because of me and today His death and resurrection brings me an abundant life.


I am also encouraged (very strongly) that this is a time of the dead things coming to life.The certainity of death is 100% for all of us.There is a sense in which death seems to say this is the end...but think about it,the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ defies this notion and from hopelessness there arises a whole new level of hope....the dead can come to life.Jesus conquered death.As Paul says...oh death where now is your sting?


My prayer this easter is that the things that have experienced a certain type of death(relationships,marriages,business,economies,etc etc) would experience a resurrection and second life.And yes it is possible.In John 11(when Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead)Jesus says to Martha,"Did I not tell you that if you believed,you would see the glory of God?"


Let us believe God for the resurrection of that which has died in and among us.

Happy easter.

What a beautiful thing to reflect upon.
