Issue 538 – Verse of the Week

April 14th – April 20th, 2022


But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us… has made us alive together with Christ.  Ephesians 2:4-5

Come Alive!

This weekend brings you to the conclusion of Holy Week, a time when you have likely commemorated the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ—the turning point of human history! The disciples on that day of resurrection had been holed up in the upper room, afraid to go out, fearful of what the Romans might do, and despondent that their Master was gone. Then the good news came that Jesus was not dead – He was very much alive. In His love and mercy, He spent time with His followers, but it would be some 50 days later before they would experience the totality of the power of His resurrection. Today, the world wants to pull you away from God, from being in right relationship with Jesus, and from fellowship with like-minded Christ-followers. This is not the time to hide, but it is the time to come very much alive! Pray to experience more of that life He gives you each day.
