“But very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared … but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus.” Luke 24:1, 3 NLT

Because He lives I can face tomorrow

Because He lives all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living just because He lives! – Gaither

“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.” Romans 3:24 NLT

Jesus lived the life we couldn’t live. Then at Calvary, taking the punishment we couldn’t escape, He freely offers us redemption we couldn’t afford, so we can live with Him forever. If He loved us so much, can’t we love each other? We’ve been forgiven: can’t we forgive? We’ve feasted at the table of mercy, can’t we share a few crumbs?

“Then he went a short distance away from them. There he got down on his knees and prayed.” Luke 22:41 NIRV

Have you had a Gethsemane? Have you prayed the night through?

Have you shed tears of agony when no hope was in view?
Have you prayed: “If it be Thy will may this cup pass from me,
But if it’s Thy will, dear Lord, I will bear it for Thee”? – Gaither

Jesus knows just how you feel!

“We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong, on him, on him…. even though he’d never hurt a soul or said one word that wasn’t true.” Isaiah 53:6,9 TM

Though His eyes were on the crowd that day, He looked ahead in time, For while He was on the cross, I was on His mind

“That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything.” Mark 11:24 TM

God comes by invitation. Our prayers open the door to Him. Any time we pray in Jesus’ name, the Holy Spirit is authorised to go to work accomplishing things on our behalf that can’t be accomplished any other way.

“Jesus said, ‘Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.’”

No one had a greater assignment than Jesus, and no one was busier: not even you! But He knew the importance of relaxation. Because he understood the balance between work and rest, He was able to accomplish so much in so little time. Lord, teach me how to rest!
