To Live Again

Luke 7:22

“And He answered and said to them, “Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have the gospel preached to them.”

This weekend we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus the Christ!  Indeed He died on the cross for the atonement of our sin, was buried and on the third day rose from the dead.  Through His resurrection death was defeated, spiritual death, the true death. That is separation from God forever.  *Romans 6:23 says “For the wages of sin is death”.  This is not only true for our bodies and souls, but to so many other aspects of life.  Death to relationships, death to jobs, death to our hopes and dreams quite often due to sin.  Jesus told His disciples to tell John the Baptist who was imprisoned what they had seen and heard, the lame walk, the blind see and those who were sick are healed (**Matthew 11:4-5).   Jesus brought life to those who were hurting and in need, even raising the dead.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He is still touching those who seek Him, opening eyes to truth and freedom, healing the broken areas of life caused by sin and hurt . In John 10:10 Jesus tells us “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”  Jesus is a God of resurrection. Wherever you are broken, wherever there is deadness in your life, give it to Him. He will bring newness of life to those who open their hearts to Him.  Life in an abundance which words cannot contain!

This is my testimony.
