“He died for us…”   1 comment

“I delivered to you first of all that which I also received;
that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures”
1 Corinthians  15 : 3

During this last week I have reflected on the days of the
‘Life of Christ’  His sufferings;  Death and Resurrection.
It has helped me to try and understand what Christ went through –
No one can really imagine – what He bore for us.
I hope that those who read my Journal this week have been blessed-
By knowing the ‘Sufferings of Christ’.  Thank you for your support.

Today I want to complete ‘The events of that Resurrection Sunday”.

At a funeral service of a loved one- These words are often spoken.-
“I am the Resurrection and the Life:”   {John : 11:25}
His resurrection is a pledge that all the dead will rise again one day.
As the angel rolled away the stone from the tomb-
so Christ’s resurrection rolls away all the doubt and unbelief from our hearts.

The one who gives life to all, will restore life again.
‘God is the ‘life giver’.  {Acts 26:8}
As Mary Magdalene failed to recognize her Lord, due to tears blurring her vision;
often it is the same with us. Our eyes sometimes dimmed, dulls our vision-
even though He is right by our side.

That same afternoon, two other disciples were walking on the road to Emmaus,
a little town near Jerusalem.
Even though these men had heard the report from the women that the tomb was empty;
they were not convinced of the Resurrection.
As they were walking and discussing all these events a stranger joint them.
He asked them if they had not heard  what had happened that morning?
They invited Jesus into their home for a meal;  Jesus blessed and broke the bread;
“Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him.” {Luke 21:31}  Then Jesus disappeared.

They hastened to Jerusalem to tell the disciples- that they had seen the risen Christ.
They heard that Jesus had met Peter in Galilee.
As they were excitedly sharing their experiences;
Suddenly, Jesus appeared in the upper room.
He showed them the scars in His hands and feet, and invited then to touch Him.

b He lives

Just like the ‘stone’ was rolled away-
we find that with God’s help, we too can remove every ‘stone’
that stands before us and our future.
We want to move forward but something holds us back.
The situation may appear impossible as we look ahead.
But as we keep moving forward- even though the future looks uncertain;
God can move whatever is obstructing  our way. ‘Because He lives.”

Thank you for following me this week-
I hope and pray that you will be inspired by Christs Love for us.
