“And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here but is risen remember how he spoke unto you when he was yet in Galilee.” Luke 24 vs 5-6
We are in the Easter season and despite all the distractions Christians all over the world are still mindful of this very important time in our faith. It is quite evident that this year we will not get to fellowship together as we would have normally done as we can only do live streaming at this time. But even though so many changes have taken place over these past couple months, one thing remains the same and that’s the sovereignty of God. The Bible says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13 vs 8). The Bible also tells us that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is living in us and shall also quicken our moral bodies (Romans 8 vs 11). The word quicken means to make or become faster. I am so glad that the resurrection power of Jesus is not only fast, but it is powerful, and it will never lose its power.
Therefore, let us use this time wisely. It’s our chance especially now during Easter season to truly reflect on what Jesus did for us at Calvary. Let’s make it a time of meditation and personal reflection. Sometimes the business of life and church duties can distract us from what’s important in our Christian journey, and that is spending quality time in the word of God and basking in his presence. We need to fellowship with him until our very countenance change. That’s what happened to Moses after he spent forty days and nights with God in Mount Sinai (Exodus 34 vs 29). His face radiated the very presence of God. It was so bright that he had to put a veil over his face to talk with the children of Israel.
Remember the story of Mary and Martha? Two sisters who were both close to Jesus. But that day when Jesus stopped by Martha’s house Mary chose to sit at his feet so she could spend time with him. The scripture says Martha became overwhelmed and cumbered because Mary was not helping her to serve the guest and complained to Jesus. Jesus answered and said to her “Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things, but one thing is needful and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her (Luke chapter 10 vs 41-42). Everything is important but only one thing is needful. May the Lord help all of us to choose the most needful part, the part where we spend time in his word and getting to know him better so our lives will be a true reflection of his presence and we will truly experience his resurrection power!
Years ago, during my devotion I could literally feel the presence of God with me. It felt so real that morning that I asked God, that if he was truly with me that day in devotion to let others see it. Later, that morning when I went to church quite a few members came to me and told me that my face looked different, they said there was a glow on my face!! Glory be to God! As we use this time to fellowship may his light shine through us so others will see and glorify him.
Let us pray: Lord please forgive me of my sins today. Thank you for your word. Thank you for raising Jesus Christ from the dead and for your resurrection power that is living in me. Lord I give you all the glory and all the praise in Jesus name. Amen. Until next time. God bless you.
