An Easter devotion to inspire you to embrace the power of the resurrection of Jesus every day. Biblical wisdom to celebrate Easter throughout the year. 

Easter comes softly, opening like the azaleas blooming in my back yard.  In a busy life, Easter sneaks in, quietly overlooked in the blare of traffic, the push of work, and the constant motion of home and family.

Preparing our hearts for Easter is easily nudged aside. For this moment, stop the scurry and take a breath. Still your thoughts and discover the refreshing power of remembering.

A thread of connection between past and present, between temporal and eternal, the act of remembering is a practical part of worship.

Sometimes remembering is retrieving a lost thought, forgotten somewhere along the way. “Oh, now I remember…”

And then there is a spiritual practice of remembering—intentionally placing something on the forefront of our attention. The word remember is peppered throughout Scripture. Guarding our wayward and forgetful hearts, the practice of remembering opens the way for the Holy Spirit to work in our thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Every. Single. Day.

Beyond all this, remembering becomes a tribute of honor, meaningful in the holiness of worship.

4 Worshipful Ways to Remember the Resurrection Every Day

Remember the first resurrection day.

Hearts heavy with grief pressed down hard, women approached the tomb to find the stone is rolled away. Far beyond the ability of a single man to move, the stone no longer seals the grave where Jesus was placed.

Thoughts and emotions tangled and fought to make sense of the inexplicable. They entered into the tomb to discover His body was gone as two men appeared:

While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing; and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here, but He has risen.”–Luke 24:4-6a

1. Remember Jesus is alive.

He is not dead.

He is not absent.

He has conquered sin and delivered us from the power of death.

In the confusion and grief of the moment, God sent a message to these women, and to us as well. How often do we, like the women at the tomb, need to remember our Lord is very much alive?

Every. Single. Day.

2. Remember His words.

“Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘the Son of Man must be delivered…'”–Luke 24:6b

Our Easter joy is in the power of this news–He has risen. The triumph of Easter is powerful, life-giving, world-changing news we need to remember. Every. Single. Day.

With our focus on Jesus’ resurrection, it’s easy to bypass the instruction of the angels at the tomb:

Remember what He said.

Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James had heard Jesus teach the Scriptures, and they also heard his personal words spoken through relationship over time. How many conversations had they had with Christ over the years?

How many memories?

How many messages had He spoken to their hearts?

In these conversations, Christ had explained what would happen–words that didn’t make sense at the time. Didn’t make sense at the moment, but in this moment it all became clear.

Now they remembered.

And now they understood.

Remembering what Christ said enabled them to understand a situation beyond their human experience. Remembering and understanding gave them powerful news to share with the others.

Remembering opened the door to greater joy through deeper understanding.

Every. Single. Day.

3. Remember to return and report.

And they remembered His words, and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.–Luke 24:8-9

Remembering isn’t’ just for our benefit, not just for our faith, not just for our moment. The holy act of remembering is for returning to our places, homes, offices, communities to share the truth that Jesus lives.

And it is for reporting what we have experienced–the power of God’s word as it meets our experience–revelation.

Hearts that remember are able to remind others in their moments, their needs, and their hard places. We have the privilege of helping others to remember what Christ has said. Sharing this post is a great way to do this.

Every. Single. Day.

4. Remember Jesus is Savior, Lord, and Life.

 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to theFather but through Me.–John 14:6

Remembering the resurrection–the truth that Christ is our Life is a worshipful way to great every day. Trusting in Christ for every need is remembering the resurrection in a way that will daily impact your life.

Happy Easter, friends! Be blessed and be a blessing as you keep faith fresh by remembering to live fully in the life of Christ.

Every. Single. Day.
