He has Risen! He has Risen indeed! Alleluia!
Today's daily devotion is based on 2 Corinthians 9:8,9, "And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written, "He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever."
You only need to glance at the news to see that the world, for the most part, is gripped by fear. Prophecies of doom and gloom are pouring all over us from every direction. In the face of such catastrophe, the love of our Lord is needed more than ever. For what can break through this present darkness except for the Light of the world himself? How can we reveal Jesus to our world during this rapidly unfolding crisis? I believe the answer is simple. Show God's love to all we meet.
Now is the time for God's people to rise and shine the Light of God's love to those who are hurting. As God's people, we will not drown in fear but rise above it like an eagle. We may never again in our lifetime have a better opportunity to reveal the grace of God and his generous, all-encompassing love. Make the most of it. Make it count.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, help us to remember that you are ultimately in control in these times of crises. Help us to share that good news with those who are hurting. In Jesus' blessed name, I pray. Amen.
