Why do you seek the living One among the dead? 6 He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee,
Luke 24:5b-6 NASB
It was so hard for the early disciples to believe what Jesus had said. They had seen Him tortured and crucified. They saw Him breathe His last. They also didn’t have the Holy Spirit yet.
It must have been a rollercoaster of emotions those days after the resurrection!
But then everything changed! Weeping turned to tears of joy, depression turned to hope, fear turned to faith, death turned to life.
You might be experincing tears, depression and fear. Is it because you have not truly set your trust and belief in Jesus Christ?
Everything changes! You are a new creation. The old things have passed away.
Trust in God. Rely completely on Him. He loves you and wants to know you intimately. He just doesn’t want to know you a one day out of the week. He desires a close relationship with you.
He gave His life so that you could experience true life. His Word is true, even resurrection to new life.
Lord, help us to understand that we have the promise of resurrection as well. Help us to know, without a shadow of doubt, that we are yours and one day we will be in eternity with You.
