Today you woke up in Jerusalem, felt the remnant of a sweet dream lingering still, and wondered.
Today is the day after Resurrection Day. The day after Jesus rose from the grave. Five days after you watched him walk willingly, full of grace to His death. Four days after you watched Him die on the cross. Four days after you heard Him say, "Father forgive them" of the very men murdering him in a gruesome, tragic end. And yesterday you saw your friend, your Lord - you hugged Him, cried, sighed in huge relief and wonder at the Man standing before you - bearing the marks of death but so full of life.
Just for a moment.
Put on John's sandals, or Mary's, and walk around in their reality.
Today you woke up, and felt the remnant of a sweet dream lingering still, and remembered.
He is risen! My God is NOT dead. My friend lives again.
How would your Yesterday change how you live today? The day after Resurrection Day.
"I am the Resurrection and the Life" (John 11:25). It's too good to be true, but it is. Let's continue in this awesome reality - thankful, hopeful, full of driving, winning love. How does that one phrase go? Yes - The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in me.*
Be Resurrected today. We are made in His image. The old is gone, the new has come. The brilliance of new, restored life - is yours. How will you live Resurrection today?
