The Impact of the Resurrection – Christ’s Restores Our Divine Connection - Monday, April 22nd

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. And 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 perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing; and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” And they remembered His words, and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also, the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles. Luke 24:1-10

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Jesus once asked His disciples, “Who do people say that the son of Man is?” After several answers, Jesus says, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Indeed, Jesus is the Messiah, the anointed One, the Christ. After the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Christ, the words of Peter are recorded in Acts 3:18 where he says, “But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled.” The idea of a suffering Messiah was a foreign concept even though it had been announced beforehand. Peter went on to say in Acts 3:19-21, “Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.”

So, Jesus Christ came once as the suffering Messiah, but He will return someday as the ruling Messiah when He will restore all things. But, in addition to him coming to sacrifice Himself for the sins of the world in the past and His coming again to rule and make all things right in the future, He comes in the present to those who repent and return and when they do, he wipes away their sins, he restores their Divine connection, and he refreshes them from within with His healing presence. There is a personal impact that the living, resurrected Jesus brings to those who truly experience Him and that is the focus of this week’s Devotionals.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, thank you for coming to me in the present as my suffering Messiah. I am so blessed to have my sins wiped away, to be reconnected with you, and to be refreshed from within by your healing presence. May it be that I experience the full impact of all that you have in mind for me as my living, resurrected Savior. I am here to receive all that you have for me going forward. I praise you and bless you, Lord. Amen

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this
site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get
that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance.
I must say you have done a superb job with this.
In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari.

Exceptional Blog!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is important and all. However imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.
Fantastic blog!

During intimate arousal, element oxide (NO) is released from brass terminals
and endothelial cells in the principal sum cavernosum. NO activates guanylate cyclase to
convince guanosine triphosphate (GTP) into cycle deoxyguanosine monophosphate
(cGMP), triggering a cGMP-pendant cascade of events.
The accruement of cGMP leads to smooth-muscularity relaxation in the corpus cavernosum and
increased blood catamenia to the member.
