This week is a celebration of the glory of Jesus’ resurrection. Women discovered the tomb empty and were informed Jesus was not there. He was not dead, but alive! Later Jesus appeared to His disciples showing them His hands and His feet. His resurrection affirmed that He was and is the Son of God. Jesus’ story does not end with a tomb; instead, we find His victory over death and our own freedom from sin through His sacrifice.
It’s easy to let busyness get the best of us. At times, we let our work schedules, family responsibilities, or even leisure activities take up a larger space in our lives than they rightly should. When this happens, we tend to give more attention to the less important things.
When the Sabbath was over and the women were free to honor Jesus by anointing His body, He was the only thing on their mind. All other cares drifted out of their minds, and in that moment, He was the most important thing in all the world. Easter provides a beautiful opportunity for us to focus on Jesus’ victory over death.
- This week and beyond, remember that in the middle of a thousand things clamoring for your attention, the resurrection of Jesus is a reality that defines your eternity. As God works in your heart, make note of the ways you’re newly impacted by the resurrection and help your students to do the same.
