RevJen - 6 days of Easter

Day 1

What we know is changing rapidly. Technology our parents couldn’t imagine is part of modern life. We can’t foresee what will be possible in our grandchildren’s life time. There’s much more to the world than we’ll ever understand. Like Easter…Jesus risen from the dead. But the impossible is real. Belief changes everything...transforms life for good.

Day 2

New life, resurrection life isn’t just for Jesus that first Easter 2000 years ago – it’s for us too. Not just when we die but here, now, every day. God is always making things new. God is always in the business of resurrection. However desperate our darkness, loss or pain, unimaginable as it may seem, new life IS happens with God. Belief changes everything...transforms life for good.

Day 3

News this week: 2,000 crosses were removed from public buildings in China in the run up to Easter this year ...Christians put in prison, abused, churches burned there and in Syria, Burma, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, Vietnam, Afghanistan, India, Indonesia, Russia, Somalia...the list goes on. Why would
millions risk persecution to believe in Jesus if Easter is made up?... Belief changes everything... transforms life for good.
New Life

Day 4

New life keeps breaking through like flowers springing up in pavement cracks. Easter shows God’s love is indestructible, his life is irrepressible, his goodness ultimately defeats evil, darkness and death... the great mystery and joy of our faith we cannot analyse or prove. But believing is seeing. Belief changes everything...transforms life for good.

Day 5

Music, hymns, poems, paintings convey resurrection more than plain words:
Up He sprang at Easter, like the risen grain,
He that for three days in the grave had lain;
Up from the dead my risen Lord is seen:
Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.
When our hearts are saddened, grieving or in pain,
By Your touch You call us back to life again;
Fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been:
Love is come again, like wheat that springs up green.

Day 6

Easter raises questions. People want to know what happened that first Easter day... how it happened...
questions no-one can answer. God questions are more personal and relevant to us: ‘What stone might I roll away from your life to unbind you from fears or worries and bring you new life? ....

How can you bring risen life to others?
