Resurrect Your Life

     Today is Good Friday. I really hate calling it Good Friday when today is the day that our Savior died because of our sins. I guess the good part comes from it being a good thing that our sins we paid for because of His death. We spend a lot of time during Easter considering the cross. However, let us never forget the importance of the resurrections. Though He had to live a perfect life to be able to pay for our sins, and though it was Him dying on the cross that paid for our sin, it is the resurrection that proves that through His perfect life and His sacrificial death He was enough! If He had sinned once, he would not be able to pay for our sins and He would not have risen from the dead. If He had not stayed on the cross to let men abuse and kill Him, we would not have any other way to God but to be perfect our self and we know there is no way to pull that off.
     The resurrection shows us that we have a new life through Jesus. Have you let Jesus resurrect the hurt, the sin, the apathy, etc. in your life? He wants to give you a new life. The best thing you can do this Easter is to start a new whole life in Christ? What will that take for you? Are you ready to do it considering all Jesus did for you?
I want to know Christ – yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death.
Philippians 3:10
