“And what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:19-20)
How do we know these things are true? He who is able to raise the dead has promised to raise all in order for us to stand before Christ on the final day. If Christ was not raised from the dead, then we who believe are to be pitied. But Christ has been raised from the dead, so believe in the One who has conquered sin and death. He who overcame sin and death, has overcome them for all who believe in His name, even unto the blessed assurance of salvation.
Lord, all mystery is in Your hand. You have come and revealed the way to life everlasting. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of the life You have revealed so that I may walk humbly with You. Guide me this day to know the overwhelming truth of what You have done. Guide me in Your goodness to see each day the best way to live in You and then live the life You have given me.
Thank You Jesus for making the way of salvation possible. Thank You for paying the price that no one but You could pay. In Your care, and by Your direction, guide me this day to live into the life You give knowing that in You alone is all hope and the promise of eternal life. Direct my days and deeds, O Lord, so that I may always be found walking with You. Let my mouth speak Your praise and my deeds show Your precepts. Amen.
