Read Matthew 28:5-6.
The empty tomb.
Death could not keep him down. He is risen. Our God conquered sin and death.
I reflect on the words of the song, “In Christ Alone”:
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ
No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
That same resurrection power is at work in us today!
Bringing It Home
Do I believe that Christ’s resurrection power is at work in me through his Holy Spirit? What does that mean for my life?
Almighty God, You defeated the grave and conquered sin. Once and for all. Teach me to live in the light of your sacrifice and in the power of your resurrection. Amen.
