For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
Just a few days ago, I had not a care in the world. Sixteen hundred miles from home, I was experiencing new adventures with friends, exploring places unknown to me. And in the blink of an eye, my days of fun in the sun were over and I was back in the real world. The one with the never-ending challenges of life in this temporary world.
The joy and celebration of Resurrection Day can become muddled when life returns to “normal” and focus is shifted back to the concerns of today. Joy soon fades to sorrow and hopefulness dissolves into disillusionment.
Jesus did not endure the trials and the pain of the cross so that we would continue to live life as though Easter didn’t occur. For the believer, the eternal life of freedom and victory from the sin that entombed us began the moment Jesus rose from the dead.
Let the reality of the empty tomb remind you that this very day you can begin to live life beyond the grave!
