The more I learn to know my Savior, the better I understand that his ways are completely upside-down from the ways of the world.
We try to control; he says, “Let go.”
We are desperate to live; he says, “Die to yourself and live in me.”
We think we must do something for him; he says, “I did it all for you.”
We want to grab all we can; he says, “Give and it will be given to you.”
We want to be served; he says, “Serve.”
So it makes perfect sense, in God’s economy, that an empty tomb would be evidence of Jesus’s supernatural work of love and power through which he offers us full life, today and forever.
The angel who met two Marys at the empty tomb said, “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.” Matthew 28:6
I believe in full and eternal life through my risen Savior, just like I believe everything else Jesus said.
“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10
I am the one hanging on to the control and He’s saying to me, “Let go!” 😉
Oh I love this, Judy–we really can’t hear these reminders too often! God bless your day most abundantly!!
“…just like I believe everything else Jesus said…”
I agree and my reasoning is simple. I believe that if God is smart enough to be the Creator, He is certainly smart enough to inspire men to write His words down so we can live by them today.
Makes sense to me! Thanks!
I love and rely on the Matt. 28:6 piece, “just as He said.” All that He says is true. All that He says He is, He is. All that He says I am, I am. All that He says He’ll do, He’ll do. All that He says will happen to me, if I do what He says, will happen to me, “just as He said.” LOVE the reliability of the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob…and of us too! 🙂 Happy Easter!
Amen! Thanks Sue, and blessings for your Easter celebrations!
