Today’s daily devotion is based on Colossians 3:4, “When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”
Do you see the personal pronoun in Paul’s words from Colossians 3? “When Christ, who is your life, appears.” Jesus is your life! History shows that even if Jesus had not risen from the tomb, he would still be a wonderful role model and teacher for you. But a living Jesus, who is no longer in the tomb, is by far better. For you see, a living Jesus can keep his promise that you, too, will conquer death. A living Jesus can keep his promise to be with you always, till the very end of the age. A living Jesus can bless you today with his power and presence. Because by faith, he’s your Jesus. He is your life
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Risen Jesus, my Savior, amid sadness and death in this world, thank you for remaining in my life. When I become anxious and fearful, remind me through the Holy Spirit that you live and that you are my Savior. In your blessed name, we pray. Amen.
