"Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Corinthians 15:57)
Before, you had no hope.
You had no choice but to give in.
You were a slave with a merciless master.
Your future was bleak, and the best you could do was limp along and muddle through.
Then came The Resurrection, and EVERYTHING changed!
Power replaced weakness.
Dreams that had been out of reach became possible.
Hopelessness would have to find a new address because our Savior's resurrection posted an eviction sign!
Good Friday is a reminder of the high price Jesus paid to purchase your freedom. Now, what are you going to do with it?
A taste of the resurrection should make you never want to go back to mediocrity. Because He lives you can do more than face tomorrow, you can soar and roar today! Fear can come along if it wants to, but it can't have the final say anymore.
Victory is your birthright because Jesus got up. Are you taking hold of it?
What better way to thank Him for what He did than to put what He gave you to good use?
Give Him an incredible return on His investment.
Let the dreams He's put in your heart morph into doing.
Worship with abandon. Believe boldly.
All of these will make Him smile.
Happy Jesus, happy you, right?
