RESURRECTION POWER


Easter … the season of hope, rebirth, newness and rejuvenation! It’s my favorite holiday!

It’s a day of celebration for the whole universe. Every creature in all creation can feel the result of resurrection power, if they choose to. It’s always up to each created being to proclaim it or to deny it. Non-belief does not change the fact that Christ’s resurrection actually happened.

The resurrection of Christ was the most powerful event to ever take place. We’ll never understand such power with our finite minds. We’ll never understand the love that caused Christ to leave the splendor and perfection of heaven to become one of us.

Jesus is God confined in a skeleton and human skin. The unlimited One took on the limitations of mankind. The Almighty One, the Omniscient One, the Omnipresent One, the Omnipotent One, the Immortal One became mortal.

All things point to Him, but man lives as if his life is his own. Man would rather go his own way than to acknowledge God’s existence.

Once the party ends, he is faced with unfulfillment, dissatisfaction, restlessness, emptiness and loneliness.

However, hope lives on, and the quest for life’s purpose finds its fulfillment in Christ.

Easter … what shall you to do with it … remain in the cold, dark tomb of your existence or burst forth into an eternal celebration of life?

Christ. Easter. Rebirth. Life. Freedom. Eternity. Choice.

Life is but a fleeting vapor. As James 4:14 aptly states, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeared for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”

My brothers, sisters, and I are sorting through the “things” that accumulated throughout the lifetime of our parents. It seems rather irreverent to be handling the things of which their lives consisted and deciding what to do with all the "stuff” that they accumulated.

Memories come flooding back as we go through closets, cupboards, and drawers containing their lifetime compilations. It’s up to us now to determine what is valuable and what isn’t; what we want to keep, sell, or throw away.

It’s a sad time, but we manage to laugh our way through it as we reminisce our days of childhood and realize how quickly time has flown.

Life … here one day, gone the next … is a fleeting vapor. The material things are all that physically remain and tell of the life we lived.

One generation is gone. Another picks up the pieces and moves on.

What is our life saying to our children and grandchildren? What are we leaving them to sort through when we are gone? What memories are we leaving? What legacy of hope for eternity are we leaving?

Our possessions are passed down to the next generation. Our absence speaks loudly to those who remain of what really mattered to us.

Easter lets us know that the grave is not the end!

Easter gives us hope and faith that what God did once in a graveyard in Jerusalem, He will repeat on a grand scale for us.

“Against all odds, the irreversible will be reversed,” according to author Philip Yancey.

John Irvine says it well, “Any fool can feel like a Christian at Christmas. But Easter is the main event; if you don’t believe in the resurrection, you’re not a believer.”

What will you pass on to your descendants? How about Easter … hope, resurrection, eternal life, Heaven?

Jesus … the reason for the season!!
