Resurrection Repayment!

He came into this world

Over 2000 years ago

To seek and to save all

Who are lost, unloved, lonely.

While He was here, fulfilling predestination

He healed all who believed

And they were set free of sin

Blindness, lameness, death and disease.

We crucified Him, He died, but He

Rose again to reign in the Heavens

For all eternity and how do we repay

The debt of love He freely gave

To all who believe and accept

His enduring, yet unearned mercy and grace?

By loving, unconditionally, whoever we meet

Honoring what He has done, is doing right now

Positioned, ready to receive all that eye has not seen

Nor ear heard what He has for us,

Unabashedly, proclaiming, “Jesus Christ is Lord,”

To all who will receive and accept

Our Father’s good and perfect gift, His son.

He is Risen!

“He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again” (Luke 24:6,7).

And this what the angels informed Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and Mary and other women who were with them (v.10), but when they told the other disciples, they were not believed. Peter went to the tomb and was amazed at not finding Jesus’ body, but still had doubts.

How many people are still not believing in the resurrection of Jesus Christ? The women who were first at the tomb believed because of their personal relationship with Him. The disciples eventually believed when He confronted them. Has Jesus confronted you, yet?

This is a glorious day set aside to always recall the work on the cross and the promise kept–He would rise again and with His resurrection–hell has no more hold over any who receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. He rose with all power in His hands and with Holy Spirit has given us the same power to overcome anything the enemy attempts to do to us.

We have the power to speak peace to any situation and dissuade chaos and confusion, to speak health to our bodies and see ourselves healed, to speak increase to our finances, and to speak love to all, for all and chase away fear.

Rejoice! He has risen and we have all we need in Him and through Him! Hallelujah!
