The central truth of our faith is that Jesus rose from the dead. The question for us is: is this just an intellectual exercise to reflect upon, or has the reality of what God has done really changed our lives ? Jesus wants us to experience the power of his resurrection in a deep and personal way.
We all encounter difficult situations with a loved one who has strayed from the faith, or a struggle with a persistent temptation, or a toxic work environment. But these are precisely the situations In which Jesus wants to bring the power of his resurrection.
On Good Friday all seemed lost and hopeless. But then on Easter morning the stone was rolled back and Jesus had risen from the tomb. Therefore when all seems hopeless in our lives and we can’t see God in our personal situation, we need to hold onto the faith that God will bring good out of what we are going through. Remember, Jesus’ resurrection is more that a doctrine. It is his power working in your life, even now !
