So between Good Friday and Easter Sunday it’s Saturday. A quiet day of just rest! Oh yeah, how quiet is our soul when it’s filled with great remorse and sadness over how we’ve handled the past day! How we’ve mocked, scorned, ridiculed and gone along with the crowd simply because of our humanity? But today, there’s hope lying in that grave of our guilt and remorse. All that guilt that follows all that stuff that we’ve just done to follow the crowd, to enjoy selfish pleasures, to crucify our Lord, well, a grace greater than our sin says “It’s not the end; but only the beginning.”

You see, on that third day, that heavy stone was rolled back and our Lord, rose out of that tomb leaving all that it stood for, behind, as He walked into the dawn of a brand new day. A new element of heavenly dimension! He entered into a new eternity with a new life, as he entered into a timely, pivotal point in history for the whole world. It was a world changer, a defining moment for humanity, where His victory over death was defeated, and the enemy’s best shot at defeating our Lord, was overturned, overthrown and overruled. The enemy’s best shot to defeat Christ and all He stood for, and all that He came to accomplish, lost, and what’s left, when death, the biggest thing ever that could thwart life, meets abundant life here and Eternal life forever: a victory so much greater?

What more can be said on the matter? It’s over! It’s done! It’s finished! Truth didn’t bury! Death didn’t win! The grave is empty! Our guilt is gone! Our Lord has risen! Our Saviour reigns and our salvation is made available. Our forgiveness is free for the asking and our guilt is lifted. Our debt is paid and our hope is eternal!

Wow, just wow! Talk about grace! Talk about mercy! After what we’ve just done, we are now free to go free and free to enter into that pivotal point that went down in history and see it working in our own lives as followers of this victorious Christ. We are free! It’s a life changer and friends, beautiful things are happening behind that impossible, rolled stone today. You are free to go free from your guilt and anxiety, worries, cares and fears! God has this one and His empty grave is our victory!

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
1 Peter 1:3

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
John 11:25-26

God’s Peace Gift


God’s peace is His extravagant gift and our sweet blessing! To experience it is to experience a calm, serene mind and joyful heart in the face of adversity and as His children, it’s our right and our authority to step into it and claim it. Peace is our victory in the difficult, our stability in the storm, our hope against the thick walls of impossible and our hug from God that all is well. Peace in our heart and soul will ward off the enemy quicker than any other weapon of warfare, simply because it takes the pressure off of fear. It removes our desire to control, to fight, to worry, to counter attack and get the last word. Peace is a peaceful mind even in the hard places. It allows grace to all ~ to either change or not to change! Peace takes our hands off the control and allows our Sovereign God to reign and manage and heal and repair. He does the work and we just step into His peace while He does it. Peace ~ such a blessing, and such a gift. Beautiful soul, step into it and walk in it as we progress along in this new year.

Say today with the Psalmist in Psalm 119:57, “Lord you are mine! I promise to obey Your words! With all my heart I want your blessings. Be merciful as You promised. I ponder the direction of my life, and I turned to follow Your laws. I will hurry without delay to obey your commands.”

John 13: 34, 35.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

As Christ loved and does love, so we must love and accept others unconditionally. It’s been said that pastors and leadership live in a fishbowl, and it’s true as every action is pretty much known by the flock, but really, whether we like it or not, all Christians are transparent. We are watched, sized up and evaluated by other believers as well as non believers. If they don’t like what they see, we quickly get labeled as the hypocrite. What do others see when they view our lifestyle, and our attitude towards others? Evidence of love for others in our lives is far reaching and will affect the way we live our lives. It will affect our behavior, our grace giving, our values, our trust and our attitude. Love is the base of our salvation and is truly evidence of an authentic, true relationship with a God who IS Love.
