It Takes Faith–Resurrection Sunday

And he (Jesus) said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”  (Luke 18:27) KJV

Today Christians celebrate Easter Sunday, also called Resurrection Sunday, because Jesus  the Messiah arose from the dead on this day over 2000 years ago.

For me, the spring bulbs that come up every year are among the proofs God offers for belief in Jesus’ Resurrection.

The first time I took the dirty brown crocus, daffodil, hyacinth and tulip bulbs  out of the bags I thought, “You mean I’m supposed to plant these;  they’re dead!” But you know what–the following spring beautiful colors emerged from the soil where those dead bulbs lay. Every year, the flowers come up. God enables life and beauty to sprout from death.

In the same way God enables life and beauty to come into our lives and then from our lives as we are in relationship with Him. For many years I lived  without hope that  life is truly worth while. Now I realize that because of Jesus’ death and resurrection there is hope and there is possibility.

If you are wondering if life is really worth while, I urge you to consider the cross and the empty tomb. Cry out to God Who loved you enough to die for you and then three days later, create a miracle and rise for you. Dare to believe He did the impossible then, and He’ll do it now. It takes faith.
