Today Reminder – 13 April 2017

A reminder for today
When they entered the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a white robe sitting on the right side. The women were shocked, but the angel said, "Don't be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He isn't here! He is risen from the dead! Look, this is where they laid his body. (Mark 16:5-6)

This is ultimately the best time of the year for Christians. Amazing how the world tries and hide the truth with easter eggs and a bunny that pops around. How sad it is that you will try to confuse people with chocolates. Jesus rose from the dead and this is the core of our faith. He rose from the dead and He is the light of the world. The only way and the only living God. What an awesome time to tell those poor atheists of a living God. There are so many scriptures outside of the Bible that confirms the existence of Jesus and then we are not even talking of the eyewitness accounts of the first books of the New Testament. The very existence of this world and the way DNA works is an absolute confirmation that God exists. So let us celebrate this easter with renewed faith and unwavering determination to show Jesus to the world.

Our God lives and we must live lives that confirms this in all that we do. We must be ambassadors to Jesus and show His love in the way we love. You cannot follow Jesus and hate your neighbour. So I am leaving you with little reminder of how it is to follow Jesus. I hope you have a blessed easter and that the glory of our Lord enlightens your faith to a new level. I’ll see you on Tuesday.

"God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth. God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will be satisfied. God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy. God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God. God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God. God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. "God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way” (Matthew 5)

Lord, let your glory shine through us over easter and let us show your love. Let us wear your armour and stand fearless. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
