He Is Alive

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- March 31, 2013

“‘Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: “The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again”’ Then they remembered his words” (Luke 24:5–8).

He is alive and I am forgiven and my soul has been set free. He is alive and I am forgiven and my joy I cannot contain. He is alive and I am forgiven and my faith is here to stay. He is alive and I am forgiven and my love flows deep and wide. He is alive and I am forgiven because He did what He promised—He arose after three days. He is alive! He is alive! He is alive!

What emotions did the friends and disciples of Jesus feel when they realized He was real? Certainly they were surprised by the joy of knowing Jesus was back, even larger than in life. Even though they had watched Him raise Lazarus after four days of death, their faith had forgotten. But now they were glad again because God raised His Son to life.

If you look for Jesus among the dead you will not find Him. He has left the cold cemetery and risen to be with the warm love of His Father. Dead churches cannot claim the calming presence of Christ because they have forsaken the faith required to recognize Him. Look for the Lord among the living, those who live out their faith with bold grace.

Remember the words of Jesus, and your faith will resound with reassurance. “I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades” (Revelation 1:18). You serve a risen Savior who lives in your life by faith. Take Him at His Word, and joy will fill your innermost being as you celebrate His appearance almost two thousand years ago. Enjoy Jesus, anticipating your Lord’s second return.

“So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him” (Hebrews 9:28).

Prayer: How can I reassure my faith with the reality of a risen Savior? Where are the places I can find Christ among the living? What words of Jesus do I need to constantly remember?

  1. I’m the proprietor of JustCBD company (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently planning to broaden my wholesale side of business. I really hope that someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most ideal way to do this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if anybody at all could recommend a qualified site where I can get Hemp and CBD Products Email List and Business Marketing Data I am presently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best option and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

    Greetings, There’s no doubt that your website might be having web browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, great site!

  9. This is a very good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere. Short but very accurate info… Thank you for sharing this one. A must read article!

  10. Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  11. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not fail me just as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read through, but I genuinely believed you would have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.
