TODAY’S READING

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.

Romans 6:5

 

What I love about Resurrection Sunday what I love about Easter Sunday is that it is a reminder of our faith, what our faith is built on, what we truly believe as Christians, what sets us apart from anybody else, and that is that we have an empty tomb. That tomb gives us everything that we need to realize that we have the same power within us because, by grace, he gave it now the things that are dead in our lives have that power to be resurrected. Things like our finances, some relationships, and maybe projects and dreams. Maybe it’s a career that you thought you would never land, maybe it is a conversation with a loved one from the past that you may have, you know, ended in bad terms but are looking to mend a relationship. 

 

Anything that is dead can be alive once again because of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and so I just wanted to spend this Monday continuing to think about, you know, the empty tomb, continuing to dwell in this beautiful season. In this resurrection season and remembering the empty tomb is a reminder that Jesus not only paid the ultimate price, but he resurrected so that we would never have to pay the price for our mistakes. But look to the one who already did. May we continue to take up our cross every day. Make me His love, go and move beyond every single one of our future failures. 

 

May everything to having us be alive again. May we be healed by his stripes; may we be holding complete in his image. May we understand that God made no mistake in creating you. You are perfect the way you are. Yes, you are flawed. You’re human. But all in all, He loves you. He wants a relationship with you and this empty tomb. This beautiful Monday is a reminder that we get to live in a relationship with the Father because of what the son did.

 

Prayer

Father God, thank you for this beautiful Monday and Easter season, and Lord, we love you so much, and we thank you for sending your son Jesus. Jesus, Lord, we love you. We thank you for everything you did on the cross 2000 years ago. We thank you for bearing the weight. We thank you for being broken and bruised, and we thank you for being nailed to a cross. As gruesome as it sounds. It was necessary so that you can be resurrected. And so Lord, we are acknowledging your Resurrection. We know that the empty tomb gives us everything we need for our faith; Lord, the empty tomb reminds us that every dead thing is alive in you; Lord, the empty tomb reminds us that you gave your life for us. But then you rose because of the resurrection power, and that power lives within us. So for today, we ask that you bring back to life those dead things you mend those relationships that need healing. You look after our projects that need reviving; you look after everything that needs a wake-up. Lord, we ask it all in your mighty name. We ask that you bless this beautiful Monday. It is in your holy name that we pray, Amen.

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
