How to Integrate Resurrection into Our Lives

How to Integrate Resurrection into Our Lives

I love spring and the joy of Easter season. I think all Christians do. But how could we bring this joy, this power into our everyday life? So that we could continue to live joyfully and freely as we are meant to do. This is the million dollar question. How can we integrate resurrection into our lives? Even though too many still think so, salvation is not just about getting into heaven. With the words of Randy Clark: “Jesus died…

Deeper into Hope and Joy

Deeper into Hope and Joy

How was your Easter weekend? Does the resurrection of Jesus have any effect on you today? I hope so. Because it changed everything. The new normal invites us deeper into hope and joy. How do you respond? That is the question, my friend. Day in, day out. Resurrection joy and power are real and at our service as God’s children. Nothing is the same anymore. Does it matter to us that Jesus is alive and well? Do we let God…

What Happens After Easter

What Happens After Easter

I don’t use any Bible reading plans. My plan is simply to read a chapter or two or three both in the Old and New Testaments every day (and, no, I don’t manage to do it every day). Once I’ve read through, I start rereading them again, usually in a different translation. So I was utterly delighted by the divine orchestrating that on Easter Monday I was reading through the last chapters of the letter to the Hebrews. It so beautifully…

(Acts 4:33, CEB) How are you bearing powerful witness to…

Hunting for Hope?

Hunting for Hope?

The whole world is hunting for peace, wholeness, and hope. But these things can only be found in a very unlikely place: the empty tomb of Jesus Christ. Because of the resurrection of Jesus who was crucified for our sins we can be made right with God. And when we are through faith right with God we receive peace upon peace. It’s not outwardly peace but inner peace right where we are. And when we have first peace with God,…

Are You Denying Resurrection by Your Actions?

Are You Denying Resurrection by Your Actions?

How are you practicing resurrection in your life? Or are you denying resurrection by your actions? Is Easter joy evident in your life? Or was Easter only a passing holiday in your life? It’s time to put the Good News of Jesus Christ in practice. It’s time to live life on God’s terms. But if God himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has…

What Does It Mean that Jesus Is Risen?

What Does It Mean that Jesus Is Risen?

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Yes, alleluia! But what does it mean, right? What does it mean to you when you are struggling to make ends meet? What does it mean to you who is just beginning to understand God’s love for you? What does it mean when God seems to be silent? What does it mean here and now? What does it really mean? The first step into resurrection living is to let Jesus carry your burdens….
