The Day after Easter

“They said to one another, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?’”  Luke 24:32

By the day after Easter, it was no longer the ears who heard the words of Jesus, the Christ, but the heart and soul within as well. When Jesus died on the cross, we went from those who heard and followed, to those who, when they heard, became disciples and leaders in His new church.

Are you still an observer of the Word, or does it burn within you with a fire you must release to the world around you? God does not call everyone to distant missionary lands. Did you not know that He has placed you in center of your own fertile field? You are the planter and harvesting-specialist here! This is the day after Easter. Your new life has begun! Let us pray:

“Father God, Holy is your name and the name of your resurrected Son, Jesus Christ. At Easter, two thousand years ago, the Day of your Kingdom-on-Earth began, and yet we often do not see your gleaming cathedrals-of-the-heart around us and within. May this be the day when Easter awakens within me with a fire so bright you shine in spite of my fear of shinning. May I be a blessing to others even when I am unaware of the gift. May I sow your word and love in the garden of my life and harvest sweet believers for you. In the name of your son Jesus, the Christ of the empty tomb, I pray. Amen”

"God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine.”
