A Resurrection Faith


A resurrection faith is the result of a personal encounter with the risen Christ.  Finding reality in your relationship with Jesus begins with your study of the Bible and your personal devotion time. No matter what time is best for you, morning, noon or night, you must at all cost make quite time for your relationship with God. Personal prayer time alone with our Lord is vital to a growing faith.

It begins with the Bible, read it through and get something you can use. Search it until a verse grips you and the clarity of it become your focus for the day. Then pray the verse and about what God is leading you to see. Remember that God is a made known to us in infinite variety and God will make use of our diverse personalities to express His will.

As I write this I am reminded that the Christian faith is not about a dead prophet or martyr. Our faith is in a risen Jesus the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus is alive. The heart of the matter is that we are witnesses to the resurrection every time we take communion, every time we share our faith with another and by the way we love one another. Live out your resurrection faith and be a witness to others today and every day.
