Thank God for the Cross of Jesus Christ and for His Resurrection! As we celebrate our Lord this season, there is no time like right now to turn from the overwhelming tumult of the world and to turn to grace and eternal life in Jesus. We absolutely must become new creations in this hour. Put aside the old things. Dedicate yourself to God. Follow Him with all your heart. Wait on the Lord. This is a season of trial, testing, and sifting. Be counted among those who put their faith in God and who aren’t discouraged. There are so many reasons in our lives to succumb to the malaise of the world and its troubles. If our eyes are not on Jesus, then we won’t be receiving the spiritual nourishment that we need each and every day. Jesus is victorious over all! Do not live in defeat one day longer when we have a God who reigns and desires us above all.
But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore He says:
“When He ascended on high,
He led captivity captive,
And gave gifts to men.”
