I love Easter almost more than Christmas! I am such a fan of Celebrating the Victory over death and the new life in Jesus. Most of us celebrated the resurrection of Jesus last Sunday and in it, remembered the death burial and resurrection of Jesus. But now what? Where do we go from here?
“What I’m about to tell you is true. Anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. In fact, he will do even greater things. That is because I am going to the Father.” John 14:12.
Wait! What? This man, the Lord, who defeated death, is telling me that if I have faith in HIM, I will do greater things? That is wild! Seriously, have you read the NT? He raised the dead, healed the lame, gave sight to the blind and brought hope to the hopeless… How could I possibly do “greater things”?
So that means He has given me the Power to be loving to my hubs and kids, grace filled while driving in traffic on Williston Rd. in South Burlington, and to be a great employee for my employers. Also, I have the keys to freedom from condemnation, guilt and shame from the things of the past.
This is better than an infomercial! Wait there’s more… Eternal Life… and it started when I said yes to Jesus.
With that huge perspective, I find hope and power for my daily life because of Him.
Life isn’t a cakewalk, but with Jesus it is so sweet! ~heather
