Celebrate Jesus' Victory Over the Grave

He rose triumphant over the grave! 

"Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father." (John 10: 17,18)

All praise and thanks to the Father, who gave us His Son to reconcile us to Himself; and to Jesus who surrendered His will to the will of the Father; and to the Holy Spirit who raised Him from the dead.

"And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you." (Romans 8:10,11)

Because He lives, we have this blessed, glorious hope. Rejoice!

"Behold, I show you a mystery: we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
(1 Corinthians 15:51-57)

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

"And Jesus came and spoke to them saying, 'All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.'"
 Amen.
(Matthew 28:18-20)

Today's Devotion: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

O how He loves and cares for you and me! God made us in His image and according to His likeness, to reflect His glory. What a high calling! 


"For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You." (Psalm 139:13-18)

A Prayer:

Lord God, thank You for Your everlasting love and for redeeming us, seeing that we all have fallen short of the glory for which we were created, and like sheep, gone astray from Your purpose for our lives. Thank You for Your precious and innumerable thoughts towards us. Thank You for the joy of Your salvation, and the power to do your will. Thank You that we can live in Your presence now and forevermore. In Your holy name, we pray. Amen.

My Joy

Inspirational Thought For Today

How are you on this blessed Saturday morning? This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Daily Thought: Jesus, Master Builder & Chief Architect

God desires that we worship Him not just with our lips, but from our hearts in spirit and in truth.

By His great power, He formed us from the dust of the earth and made us a living soul. He clothed us with flesh, fenced us with bones and sinews, and put His spirit within us. He fashioned all our members, and made us to multiply and fill the earth. Yet the “Master Builder” and “Chief Architect” of His universe has not left His “Blue Prints” in our hands. Man has tried to come up with his own designs, but have failed to produce an enduring work. Jesus is the foundation, and the chief cornerstone that holds it all together.  

As we watch Him and learn at His feet, we would be instructed as to how to go about His business. Our ultimate desire would be to bring glory to His name.

As we live our daily lives, we should be cognizant of His presence. Our hearts should rejoice as we bring Him the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Ignoring Him will result in misguided undertakings, that will not endure the test of His fire when it is tried. We need not fear when He is leading, for He will direct our paths in righteousness, mercy and truth. Amen.

In the Garden and Under the Shade of His Love


If you’ve ever taken a walk in a beautiful garden, you are in no haste to leave. You pace your steps as you take time to gaze in wonderment and touch the flowers. You might occasionally stoop to move some twigs out of the way.
  As we walk in the light of God’s word, He reveals the glories of His garden—His perfect will for our lives is manifested as we grow in the grace and knowledge of Him who atoned for our sins and brought us into His glorious kingdom.
  In the garden, we find our calm repose away from the cares of life. We cast our doubts and fears aside and believe on His name. Being formed in us, His sweet fragrance is diffused to the glory of His name.
  In His presence, we have peace and liberty. Come, walk with the Lord in the shade of His love. Come and know His unspeakable joy. His desire is to have fellowship as He did in the beginning before the fall. If you have never experienced His grace and forgiveness, His arms are opened wide. Whosoever will may come.
  “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “ John 3:16,17
