not just for easter
We showed this video at church on Easter Sunday and then sang the song...I read around blog land at the time that many others had the same special experience that morning.
But as my husband showed it to a group of teens at camp this week I was reminded again that this message isn't just for Easter, it is my life breath each day. "The resurrection is the sermon I need to preach to myself every day," my friend shared one morning.
"I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection..." Phil 3:10a
"And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, then He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in you." Rom 8:11
As a follower of Christ, I long for the victory that having "fellowship in his suffering" brings! I want to rise each morning, renewed and refreshed - AWAKE - to what God has for me, and ready to receive His power to accomplish it.
Because I am His and He is mine.
