Driving through a small town in Tennessee, I saw this on a church sign and it resonated with me. We are people of the resurrection and we have just celebrated that with great enthusiasm. As I mentioned on Easter Sunday, sometimes we forget that it is resurrection day, everyday. When we give our lives to Christ, we are submitting to his authority and allowing Him to reign in our lives. This has to change us. As Paul says in Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” We need to let Him reign in our lives freely.
We also need to remember that He will return. We don’t know when, but it sure seems like it will be soon. So we need to have a zeal for the Lord’s return and a burden for the lost. We need to be ministers of grace and love and to walk in the peace of God. By doing this, we will encourage those around us to give their lives to Christ. Let’s make sure we take all of our loved ones with us to heaven. Remember that He is risen. He is reigning. He is returning. Praise the Lord!
