When Jesus of Nazareth was raised from the dead on the third day after His crucifixion and burial, the world was irrevocably changed. God had honored the greatest human life ever lived by bringing back its star for an encore – an encore that would last an eternity.
Jesus ascended into heaven and from there the glory of His never-ending life shines forth. We cannot see this glory with our physical eyes, but our spiritual eyes – that is, our faith in Him – has 20/20 vision.
Be done with the darkness of ignorance that covers this earth – the spiritual ignorance of God’s glory. Live your life in the light of God’s radiant presence through Jesus Christ. Do not consider Him foreign for He donned flesh and blood and lived the same sort of existence you now live. He knows what it’s like. He’s truly been here.
Jesus is looking down toward you now with the same great love that animated His gaze upon the crowds that followed Him during His earthly life. Look to Him now. Speak to Him. But, more importantly, listen to Him! He speaks deep within your heart.
