I remember when I got saved…I said the Sinner’s Prayer…I cried as I asked God for forgiveness…and then that was it…until…
…my husband came home and asked me how my day was…I told him I had said a Sinner’s Prayer…I told him I had gotten saved…and it was at that moment that a smile formed on my face and I was filled with the Purest Joy that I have ever felt!
I was reading some Scripture with my children this week…reading to them the accounts leading up to Jesus’ Betrayal…Crucifixion…and His Resurrection…
It was while I was telling them about Jesus rising from the dead…not like a Zombie…but coming back to Life again in real human form…His heart beat again…His blood flowed again…He breathed breath again…He was Alive…
He is Alive!!!
It was at that moment that a smile spread across my face and I felt that Pure Joy again.
You want to feel that Pure Joy? Testify…go tell someone that Jesus is Alive…go tell someone what Jesus has done…and bask in the Glory of that God-given Joy!!
Matthew 28:5…The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
Mark 16:4-6…But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’”
Luke 24:1-7…On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”
Praise Be To God!!!
