BIBLE READING|2 CORINTHIANS 4:4-6
The message that the apostle Paul and the early church preached declares that Jesus Christ is the Saviour and Lord of life. He died a voluntary death and suffered crucifixion as the Saviour of the world. He bore our sins in His body on the cross, but He died as a victorious Saviour. In His voluntary death, He won the victory over sin, death and hell, and was raised to the newness of resurrection life on the Resurrection morning.
The New Testament always links His absolute sovereignty as Lord of life to that event. The resurrection endorsed, proclaimed and demonstrated the victory that Jesus won at the cross. He died as our Saviour, but He now lives as our Lord. Paul surrendered his life to Jesus as Saviour and Lord on the road to Damascus. For the first time, Paul could see clearly God’s glory and power as it was reflected in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. He understood also that the same glorious, creative power that spoke the world into existence and replaced darkness with light was the explosive power and glory of resurrection that brought Jesus out of grave.
What better way to celebrate this message than to accept the new life Jesus offers today? Trust Him as your Saviour, surrender your will to Him as Lord. Then you will know the thrill, the joy, and the security of the resurrected Christ Jesus living inside of you.
The question is, have you seen the glory of God in the face of Christ? Has God driven back the darkness of sin and unbelief in your life?
PRAYER: Thank you Jesus, for giving your life for me.
