Day Seven: Do Something!

Today is Resurrection Sunday! The day we celebrate the resurrection of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ!

Aren’t you glad that He rose from the grave to give us new life? The significance and impact of this stupendous event is something we cannot fully fathom, yet God designed it so that anyone who believes can share in its splendor, no matter who we are or what our station or circumstance in life maybe. As you celebrate Easter Sunday with family and friends, or even if you just choose to spend the day quietly by yourself, reflect on the following wonderful blessings of the resurrection of Christ.

1. We too, like Jesus, shall be resurrected to share in the eternal glory of God forever (Romans 6:4-5, Romans 8:11, 2 Corinthians 4:14, Philippians 3:21).

2. The greatest enemy of mankind—death or separation from God—has been conquered and has no more hold or power over those who believe (1 Corinthians 15:26, 51-55; Hebrews 2:14; Revelation 20:14).

3. We now have eternal life and we will never die (John 11:25-26).

As Holy Week 2010 draws to a close today, keep the meaning of His passion and resurrection fresh in your heart and mind all the year through. Then commit each day to doing something with this knowledge and experience that you have gained. Make up your mind that you’re going to do something for your family…for others…for society…and most definitely for God. And may the celebration of Holy Week become a lifetime experience of loving and serving Jesus more and more.
