We just celebrated Easter. Christ’s resurrection is the cornerstone event of the Christian faith. Because He died for our sins and rose from the dead, we too can be resurrected. Easter gives us that hope.
Several verses stood out to me this week in the light of Easter.
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.” (1 Corinthians 10:26 ESV) Everything belongs to Him.
“So whatever you do, whether you eat or drink, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV). Whatever we do in life, whether its changing diapers, driving a bus or running a company, we need to do all things like we’re doing them to God. He gets the glory when we live our lives to the best of our ability no matter the task.
“But my eyes are towards you, O Lord my God; in you I seek refuge, leave me not defenseless.” (Psalms 141:8) Our job is to focus on the Lord, not our problems, and He will take care of the rest.
“Let my prayer be counted as incense before you and the lifting of my hands as an evening sacrifice.” (Psalms 141:2)
