Sometimes life can get clouded over by a heavy fog of despair. The situation may look so dark that we begin to lose hope. Just as the sun burns away a fog, our faith in God can burn away the haze of doubt. Hebrews 11 reminds us of the faith of Noah, who was “warned about things not yet seen,” yet obeyed God. Abraham went where God directed – – even though he didn’t know where that would be. Though we have not seen Him and cannot always feel His presence, God is always present and will help us through our darkest nights (and days).
Has the message of Jesus death, burial, and resurrection made it from your head to your heart? Jesus didn’t die for a faceless humanity, He died for you and me. He rose again for you. He wants you to know Him, not just know about Him. You see, it must be personal in order for His death and resurrection to be effectual in your life.
Let me encourage you this Easter weekend to make sure you don’t just simply go through the motions. The worst thing that could ever happen to anyone is to know the plan of salvation and not the Man of salvation… to know the way to heaven and yet fail to go that way.
And we respond, “The Lord Is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!”
