Spend a couple of minutes reflecting on our Master’s resurrection victory over the powers of death. For example:
Then, pray for yourself: Father, take me into more of Christ today.
Open up to me more experiences of living in his victory over all the forces of death and darkness.
Show me how to walk in the newness of life as one who has been crucified, buried, and raised with your Son—united with him forever.
The Lord Jesus Christ is alive forevermore! He holds the keys of death and Hades. He is the mighty conqueror. Therefore, I pray that the same Spirit that raised him from the dead in a glorious body would give resurrection power to everything I am called to do for Jesus’ kingdom.
Father, lead me every single day in Jesus’ triumphal procession that emerged from the tomb and has marched on through the centuries. Do so in a way that spreads through me the matchless message of the gospel—the truth that proclaims, “Christ lives, and therefore you can live also!”
May my life and my words manifest to everyone: “It is no longer I who live, but the risen, reigning Christ who lives in me.”
