Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are the resurrection and the life. Come alive and arise in me today and every day.

"Jesus said to her, "I AM the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in Me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?' She said to Him, 'Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Messiah, the Son of God, the One coming into the world'" (John 11:25-27).

Yesterday we celebrated Resurrection Sunday.  As I begin my work week I say to You, like Mary and the followers of Jesus throughout the ages, "Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Messiah, the Son of God, the One coming into the world." You're the One who's come into my world and into my heart to change my life and my world around me in the glory of Your name and the power of Your love. 

My heavenly Father, fill me afresh with the Spirit of Christ, with resurrection power. "If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in (me), He who raised Christ from the dead will give life to (my) mortal body also through His Spirit that dwells in (me)!" (Romans 8:11)  So I welcome Your Word and Your Spirit to come alive and arise in me today and every day.  Let it be my joy to share with others the good news and grace of my resurrected Lord that can change their life as well. 

For forty days we journeyed through Lent in solemn reflection and preparation for the celebration of your resurrection.  Let all this time of preparation not end after only one day of celebration!  May we continue all this week inviting people over for dinners, feasting, and toasting to Jesus and the hope and Joy He has ushered into our lives. In Jesus' name pray. Amen.

My family, I pray you are filled afresh with the Spirit of Christ, coming alive and arising in you this day and every day.  I pray you continue to share and celebrate our cry, “The Lord has risen indeed, Alleluia!” throughout in conversations and gatherings throughout this week, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friends!
