PRAYER: Please pray today for the crowd that was at the show last night. We had about 400 people outside, quite a night. Pray that the worship and the prayer would remain with them during their walks this week.
DEVOTION: “Resurrection is the word for it. Resurrection shakes away death and breathes life into you; it lets you know that you are quickened from the dead by the Spirit and that you are made like Jesus. Glory to God…..Jesus is resurrection, and to know Jesus in this resurrection power is simply to see that you no longer have to be dead; you are alive unto God by the Spirit.” (pg 69)
I know. Sometimes, feeling alive is a very difficult thing. Sometimes feeling alive doesn’t feel alive at all. Sometimes we can’t even get out of bed. I get that.
Smith is speaking directly to you and me here. Telling us that the resurrection that we have in Jesus, the power that we have in the Spirit gives us new life. Makes us whole each day.
I know. Sometimes we don’t feel whole. Sometimes there are pieces of us that are missing because….life. But, remember, Jesus died to make you whole. He died to make you alive.
Today. Be alive. Be whole. Fight for the life that Jesus has for you. Fight for it. Stand up today against all that’s taking your life away. Stand up and be made whole. Stand up and be made new. Stand up and be made alive today because…..Jesus.
You are alive today. You are new today.
