A Day of New Dreams

Today is a day of New Dreams.  When Christ rose from the grave He gave the first disciples a new first priority. “That I might know Him and the power of His resurrection” (Philippians 3) was Paul’s dream.  It must be ours as well.  If Jesus is alive, He MAY be known.  If Jesus is alive, He MUST be known.  No insult is deeper to God than for us to ignore His son.  Perhaps this explains Romans 10:9, “if you. . .believe in your HEART that God raised Him from the dead”.  Heart describes the place of our ambitions and desires–the vault where we store what we truly love.  Until the Resurrection of Christ changes our deepest loves, until it changes our dreams, we are still strangers to its saving power.  In a few hours we will shout together, “He is Risen!”  Like prayer, these words only have power if they come from the heart.  Bless you, dear friend, on this happy Easter morning.
