It's the day after Easter. Now what? We have reflected on and celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Again, now what? He has risen! So what do we do about it?
The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in you! To give you POWER! Jesus said the flesh profits nothing; it’s the Spirit that gives life. (John 6:63)
Some years ago, when we were ministering at a youth camp, we wrote a theme song called Be A Hero. The song said, We are Heroes, because He rose! This is so true today! Have you noticed how many Superhero movies are being made today? Almost weekly, there is a new movie about an Avenger, Superman or even an Antman. Antman? Yes! (I know when our grandson comes, I'm always Spiderman. :-)
But...we are Heroes! Yes, you and I are Heroes because He Rose! The world is searching for and longing for a superhero with the power to help them and to give them hope. That's you and me, that's us!
The Apostle Paul said we could know him and the power of His resurrection. We don't have the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power! (2 Tim.1:7). This is what the world is looking for. Power and Hope!
Be bold. Be strong. Be a Hero today. We are Heroes! Because He Rose!
