You can do it! Really! What has the Lord has called you to do? What ever it is, you can do it!
This weekend churches all around the globe celebrated the glorious Resurrection of Jesus Christ. We remember the miracle, the mystery, the incredible power that infused life into His lifeless body. The Man who was beaten and tortured for us, who suffered and died on our behalf, rose again. He is risen!
Ponder the awesome move of the Holy Spirit that breathed life into Christ’s body, and restored Him to perfect health. Imagine the force it required to move the massive stone from the tomb. Envision the light shining from the angels who made the announcement to the women.
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” Then they remembered his words. Luke 24:1-8
The story doesn’t end here. The amazing life of the Spirit is in us. He is in you and in me.
The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. Romans 8:11
So, I ask you again. What has the Lord called you to do? He had more than enough power to raise Jesus from the dead. He lives in you and has more than enough power to strengthen you to live for Him and do His will. You have what it takes!
Keep the miracle of the Resurrection and the power of the Holy Spirit in full view, as you follow God’s call. He is risen indeed!
