“He is Risen” by Sonya Richards
Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. John 16:20 (NIV)
Jesus knew His time on earth was nearly over. Throughout the gospel accounts Jesus tries repeatedly to explain to His disciples what was to come, but being earthly minded they never seem to grasp what He is trying to say. It is easy for us to read these accounts from this side of the cross and to think the disciples just a bit dull, but how many times do we act the same?
We have the truth from both sides of the cross, but do we truly know Him in the power of His resurrection? Just as Jesus predicted the disciples wept and mourned at the crucifixion, but when they discovered the empty tomb, encountered the resurrected Jesus and received the promised Holy Spirit they set the entire ancient world on fire! If we went to a loved one’s funeral and then encountered him or her alive again, I doubt we would ever stop talking about it to everyone we know.
We burn brightly in the beginning with excitement and the passion of knowing we are redeemed, but allow the fire to go out. This Easter season may the fire in our hearts for Jesus be kindled anew.
Father, I pray that this Easter You will set our hearts on fire to run and tell everyone we know that He is risen indeed. Amen.
