A Ponder Slice ( for Resurrection Day, 04/04/10)

A Scripture to Ponder:

             “Why do you seek the living among the dead?  Jesus is not here; He has risen.”    (Luke 24: 5-6a) 

            “We were buried with HIm by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”   ( Rom. 6:4)

A Question to Consider:

                How is your daily life different — ever “new”– because a man got up and walked out of his own grave?   

A Prayer to Pray  

               Lord Jesus, the eastern horizon is painted yellow and gold, the birds are singing a chorus and the blooming  jonquils along the fence row all shout together that you are risen and alive!  And now I join them in celebration.  Your life after such a death and darkness is a miracle beyond words or description.  Help me rejoice today in a way that matches this wonder.  And even more, help me live my tomorrows constantly and gratefully aware that you have promised I can live in that same death-defeating power every moment.  I pray all this tothe glory of the name of my  gracious, living  Savior and King, Jesus.  Amen
