Easter Re:Verse reading–John 20:1-18 (day one)
“They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.”–v 9
It is something we say when our words are inadequate. A story isn’t funny/or scary to people who only hear about it. “You had to be there”, we tell them.
The Resurrection of Christ is the same. Words aren’t enough. Not for the disciples and not for us. Until you experience the Savior alive you cannot know that He is. A real encounter is required. Sight or Spiritual power, conviction of the conscience– We must experience His powerful presence.
Faith doesn’t mean that we believe without evidence. It means that we allow the evidence to mean what God says it does.
“Our gospel did not come to you in word only, but in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction.”–1 Thessalonians 1:5.
Happy Easter, my friends. May we know the “power of His resurrection”–Philippians 3:10
