After Easter

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10

Well, Easter is over. All the people who only go to church once a year have gone and left for another 12 months. And you know, for the world this is "the end of the story" but for those of us who have experienced the wonderful power of Jesus' resurrection in our own sinful hearts it is "just the beginning."

Every day that we follow Jesus is richer and fuller than the one before. the world talks about joy, but they don't have a hint of the glorious and overwhelming Joy that comes from knowing we are in the center of God's will.

The world talks about peace and then struggles constantly to bring it about in their own lives and in the world. God's Children live in the midst of peace--our own little bubble of it so to speak. We are at peace with God, knowing our sins are forgiven and we are living according to His Plan for our life. We are at peace with our selves; having submitted our will to His, we no longer need struggle to find what is right to do. he's there to guide us.
We are even at peace in the world! Oh, it may roar and rage around us. Neighbors may fuss at us, there may be wars and rumors of wars on the international scene, national and local politics may be corrupt, but for the people of God it is calm and serene. No matter what is happening in the world around us, we are protected and secure in the Hand of God. he will take care of us.

What a fantastic job Jesus did for us at Calvary and when he rose from that tomb, He gave us victory over sin and triumph over the world. No more turmoil, no more conflict, no more fear, no more death.

While the world celebrates Easter and stops at the bunnies and eggs, and the nominal Christian talks about the death of Christ and His attonement, we who have been born again can know Him in all the breadth and depth of His Power!

Praise the Lord.
