THEME: CHRIST OUR RESURRECTION
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
-We can trace back resurrection of the dead from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Elijah raised the dead son of the widow of Zarephath (1 King 17:17-24), Elisha raised the dead son of the Shunamite woman (2 Kings 4:18-37), Peter raised Dorcas (Acts 9:36-42), Paul raised Eutychus (Acts 20:7–12), Jesus raised the son of the widow of Nain (Luke 7:11–17), Jesus raised Jairus’ daughter (Luke 8:49–56) and the epitome of it all; Jesus died and resurrected on the third day (Mat 28:1-20). All these was and is still possible; through the power of the Holy Spirit. In the above text, we find Lazarus who was taken ill and Jesus was requested to come and perform a healing miracle. Mary and Martha were anxiously waited for Him but He took longer that they expected and Lazarus their brother died. Despite this unfortunate event, Martha was still expectant having witnessed the power of Christ, and she said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” Jesus demonstrates that He is the resurrection and the life and He who believes in Him,though he may die, he shall live and whoever lives and believes in Him shall never die. He called Lazarus forth from the dead and many believed in Him. As Christians, the resurrection of Christ is the foundation of our faith, knowing that Christ is all we need in our lives now and in the uncertain future. He is able to resurrect every dead situation in our lives, families, nation and the world, when we trust in Him. Christ is our resurrection and life, and because He lives, we will live forever with Him.
With the merciful show Yourself merciful Father. With the blameless show Yourself blameless Jesus. With the pure show Yourself pure Holy Spirit. Only You are holy Lord, only You are righteous, only You are worthy of all praise. Your light is a lamb to our feet and a light to our path, enlighten our steps dear Lord. We humbly ask You to resurrect any dead situation in our lives, families, nation and all the nations of the world, be it our health, businesses, relationships, marriages, education system, spirituality and economies; for all our hope is in You Father. Save us from the corona virus and any other schemes of the evil one and resurrect our hope of salvation. We rely on You for sustenance Lord, we depend on You for protection, we believe in You; our Hope and Salvation, help us. Our hearts cry out to You, thank You Father for You have always heard our prayers and answered our hearts desires according to Your unfailing love. We trust in You Father; renew our strength. We shall soar on wings like eagles, run and not grow weary, walk and not be faint; for all our hope is in You Lord. You are the resurrection and the life Jesus; satisfy our souls with Your everlasting life. Thank You Father for Your unfailing love upon us; all glory and praise belongs to You. Amen
