I will continue to work on Psalm 95.
In His hands are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
Post the verse you are working on for the next two weeks in the comment section. If you are willing, please also leave a sentence or two about an aspect of Jesus' death and resurrection on which you may be reflecting this week.
I shared last night that the women going to Jesus' grave with spices and being greeted by the angels who exclaimed, "Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here! He is risen!" has been swirling in my mind and heart. Why do I look for Jesus in the dead things of life? In significance in my roles? In gratitude for what I do? In material goods? In the lame substitute the world offers? Jesus is not in the dead things. He is alive!
I will be praying that our hearts grieve over the death he paid in substitute for ours. I will also be praying that our hearts rejoice and worship because his resurrection to life also bring us life!
Jesus is risen!
