SU DAILY GUIDE FOR TODAY 20TH SEPTEMBER 2023 MESSAGE:
Is the resurrection a controversial issue in your own culture too? Do we have people among those who profess to be believers who still do not believe in life after death? Suppose they are right! Read these eight verses again and identify the implications for us as believers. Were the resurrection false, then believers are doomed both here and hereafter. We have no message to preach to the world if Christ is not raised (v.14). Christian message to the world is unique because Christ’s grave is empty, totally empty. Other religious leaders still have their dead bones in their tombs today. What other implications can we find from this passage (vs.14-19)?
The joy is that Christ was raised from the dead. By this truth, our message is not in vain, our sufferings are not in vain, and our faith too is not in vain. We are not miserable people, but hopeful people. Our faith is not futile but one with a solid foundation. Our beloved brothers and sisters in Christ who left this world ahead of us have not perished. We shall see them again.
Thought: Do you sometimes wonder what the future holds because of so many sufferings in the world? Take heart. The resurrected Saviour is on His throne, and He is in total control.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
Thank you, Lord Jesus, that because you live, death has no power over me.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Isaiah 35:4
