Happy Resurrection Day!

Death is defeated. Christ is exalted. Happy Resurrection to you my dear friend.
Today, I'm so excited to celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the grave to bring freedom and liberty to us. Aren't you?
The words of Matthew 28:5-6 NLT are ringing in my soul: “Then the angel spoke to the women. ‘Don’t be afraid!’ he said. ‘I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying.’”
My heart overflows with praise and gratitude that Jesus Christ is alive, and that He did just as He said He would do: He got up from the grave with all power in His hands. This is the greatest news we could ever receive, isn't it? And because we know Christ is risen, we can rejoice that the same resurrecting power is working in us today.
Christ's resurrection not only saved us from sin and secured eternal life for us, but it also entitled us to receive blessings, favor, and an amazing inheritance reserved for those who attain righteousness through the blood of Christ.
On this day, make sure you join me and other believers around the world in celebrating the fact that Christ the King reigns supreme. Furthermore, bask in knowing that, no matter what you may be going through, Christ died and rose to bring liberty to the captive. That means we have been freed from bondage in every form.
Therefore, whatever has come to hold you back must release you -- for the chains of enslavement are broken. We are no longer bound. We are free! The Resurrected King, the Exalted One, has won the victory already.
God, I thank You for sending Your son Jesus to die and rise for my sin. I praise You that by faith, I have attained freedom from sin and inherited eternal life through Christ. Help me to be ever mindful that, because of Christ’s resurrection, I am free from whatever tries to hold me back, and I am more than a conqueror through Him that loved me according to Romans 8:37. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
