All powerful Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, I thank You for Easter, one of the most miraculous and powerful events in the world, as recorded in Mathew 28:5-7. “But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead.”
Thank you that when I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, You considered my sins to have died with Him, and I am no longer condemned. My salvation experience allowed me to become one with Him and have access to all that He is and can provide. I praise You for what is expressed in Galatians 2:20, that not only did I die to self through Christ, but that I was also raised with Him to now be able to live a Christian life. “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.” It is an awesome gift You have given me through the Holy Spirit to now have the same resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead dwelling within me as I live my daily life. Direct me to be developing this relationship with You by reading Your Word and spending quiet time communicating with You in prayer.
Revelation 5:12b “‘Worthy is the lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!'” Amen.
P.S. Since Good Friday, Easter, and the resurrection are all about Jesus, if these events are not personal and real to you, we encourage you to go to the Salvation Tab on our blog and follow the steps to become a child of God through salvation.
