The glorious resurrection of Jesus begs us to answer the question, "What now?" What does this mean for our practical, real, everyday life?
The resurrection reminds us that God makes dead things come to life. And if God can make dead things come to life, He can certainly do the same for me. In salvation He made us who were dead in sins come back to life (Ephesians 2:1). We were once far from God, but the blood of Christ has brought us near (Ephesians 2:13). We have been raised with Christ and saved by His grace (Ephesians 2:5). The triumphant truth of the Gospel is that we were so far from God, but His death and resurrection have brought us near to Him.
Chapter 21 of John starts by telling us that Jesus was revealed again, and that is just what Jesus' time on earth did—it revealed who God is.
So Jesus calls to us and says, I have shown you who I am, now follow Me.
The cross reminds us of the magnificent love of our God, and the empty tomb reminds us of His triumphant power.
So what does the resurrection mean for our everyday lives? It means that we can take every care to a God who loves us beyond comprehension and who is mighty to save. So when you need to be reminded of His love, look to the cross. And when you need to be reminded that there is nothing too hard for our God, look to the empty tomb. The God who has loved you with an everlasting love also has the power to bring dead things to life again. There is nothing too hard for our God.
And every day that He gives us, we hear His gentle voice whisper to our hearts, "Follow Me!"
So what does the resurrection mean for you?
