Today we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, the great power of the cross made everything brand new for mankind. The resurrection of Jesus made resurrection power available to us. His disciples were witnesses of His resurrection. They became bold and courageous, after receiving power from on high on Pentecost, that power that the Holy Spirit gave was the power of resurrection. We are witnesses now of the kingdom of God here on earth, because of the power of the resurrection of Jesus, that lives inside of us through the Holy Spirit.

1 Peter 1:3 Let us celebrate the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ with articulate acclaim. According to his matchless mercy and tender compassions, he birthed us again when Jesus was raised from the dead.

5  Your legitimate inheritance was guarded all along by Gods belief in you, to be fully unveiled in the conclusion of time as the perfect solution to mankinds predicament. Mirror  ↕↕↕
