THEME: CHRIST OUR RESURRECTION
1 Corinthians 15:20-21
“But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.”
-As we know through Adam sin came into the world and through Christ we were liberated from the power of sin causing eternal condemnation. It is written that, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit” (1 Corinthians 15:45). God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his only son Isaac and he went ahead to mount Moriah in obedience. When he lifted up his knife to kill his son, behold; God provided a substitute; a lamb and Isaac came down alive which is a picture of the resurrection. When we were condemned to death because of our sins, Christ became a perfect substitute for us on the cross and after three days; He resurrected and lives forever. Christ is our good shepherd; He lay down His life for the sheep (John 10:11). Christ was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). Christ took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses so that we may live in liberty as His children.
Our Lord and our God we come before You this morning, thanking You for the gift of life. It is not by our power nor might that we have seen this day but by Your Spirit Lord. Thank You for Your divine presence in our lives and for the sacrifice that You made on the cross for sake of our liberty. You were wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities so that by Your stripes we may be healed, heal us dear Lord. For the many times we have gone against Your holy will Lord, forgive us and cleanse us with Your precious blood. For the many times that we have grieved You Holy Spirit, forgive us and fill us with Your love. Many are sick and suffering among us especially with the COVID 19 pandemic, heal them all Lord for by Your stripes we are healed. We humbly ask You Jesus to heal us physically, emotionally, economically, financially, socially, politically, psychologically and spiritually; for by Your stripes we are healed. You were raised from the dead so that You may become the First fruits of those who are asleep, have mercy on those who have gone before us. Only You are our Lord, only You can save us Jesus, have mercy on us and protect us from all evil. Resurrect us Holy Spirit from the dead like situations that we experience in our lives and fill us Your fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self control, we humbly implore You. Amen
