Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ wonderful Name to thank You for this time of Easter to celebrate the completed cycle of events for my salvation, which is ultimately a home in Heaven with You. It was only a few months ago that I celebrated Christmas, the miraculous birth of Your Son coming to Earth to save mankind from a place of terrific sufferings called Hell. It is Jesus’ horrific death on the cross for my past, present, and future sins and His resurrection that has made it possible for me to live in Heaven with You forever after my life on earth.
Thank you that what Jesus told Martha in John 11:25-26 applies to me as well. “‘I am the resurrection and the life, He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?’” Thank you that Easter does not only pertain to the past or a future time. Because of everything surrounding Easter, my life as a Christian has been fully impacted and affected in the present. One of the greatest gifts You have given me is the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
Through Your Word, You correct and direct me on how to experience and enjoy many of your blessings. An example is Philippians 4:6-7. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Jesus, thank you for all You did for me on the cross. Because of all that You have done, are doing, and will do in the future, I say to You Revelation 5:12b. “‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!’“
In Jesus’ powerful Name, Amen.
