Resurrection Sunday is here and it’s not a once-a-year event. It was the starting point of our resurrected lives if we have accepted Jesus as our Savior. It is Easter. It is a holiday. It is symbolic and it is a lot more than a chocolate rabbit or a slice of ham as we like to celebrate it in the US. I love Easter. I love what it represents and I love to remember that it is what kicked off my new life and it is a daily event. Resurrection Sunday is resurrection every day. Your new life is an everyday reality. It’s not once a year and it’s not once a week. Why then do we get stuck on the occasional new life experiences? Our lives in Christ are not an occasion. They are an eternal celebration. We are to celebrate the life we have through Christ. We are saved. We are forgiven. We are blessed. We are heirs of the Lord. We are resurrected with Christ. Your Sunday is here to stay, friend. This resurrection is yours forever. The importance of what Jesus did for us just blows my mind. It is worth celebrating every day. Today I am here to encourage you to live out your resurrected life. It is Easter. It is a reminder of what we should be living all the time. Let’s not get stuck on that terrible Friday night most of the time. Let every day be Resurrection Sunday. That’s what the Lord intended it to be.
Your resurrected life is still happening today. You are living thanks to Jesus and through Jesus. Resurrection implies being born again, living again. Your new life is provided by the One who created the universe. It’s not just a simple life. It’s a life that is in sync with God’s best. You have passed from darkness to life. Your old life is dead. It is gone. It was buried and it perished in that grave with the Lord. The tomb was rolled and new life came out of that place of doom. There is no doom today. You have been resurrected with Christ into a life of peace and harmony with God. Think about it! You are in harmony with God. Meditate on it. Believe it and see it come to pass. Your old life is no longer in existence but the enemy will bring it back to your mind every chance he gets. He will revive what died and blind you to the point where you will trust that you are still the old you. Don’t buy into the lies. Don’t relive your past. Don’t entertain an old life mindset. Jesus took care of it all on the cross. Your past needs to stay in the past. According to the Lord it doesn’t have any power over you anymore. God knows best. Follow His lead.
What does Resurrection every day look like? It’s a life where we are no strangers to God. A life where God is our focus and our life. Every day should be dedicated to the Lord. That is a good way to live our Resurrected lives. If you have been vacillating between your old life and the new life in Christ, use this Easter as a restarting point and keep on staying in the Lord from now on. Celebrate Easter today and every day. Celebrate Jesus all the time because He didn’t die so that we would rejoice on a designated day. He designated every day for us to rejoice. Have a great Easter Sunday. Have a great Resurrection Sunday and have an awesome resurrected life! Jesus is risen and He will never go back into the grave so don’t put Him back there. Keep Him where He is. He is not on the cross anymore. He is alive and that will never change!
