7 Ways to Live Out Resurrection Day Everyday
Last Sunday, in the pre-service prayer meeting Brother Teck Lim shared about “Resurrection Sunday” which is usually known as Easter Sunday. He also challenged us to live out each of our day as “resurrection” day. That is to live for Christ daily for what He has done for us on the Cross. The risen Christ died for our sins, and gave us eternal life.
We can learn to live out everyday as Resurrection day. Here are 7 ways:
Recognise your sin for what it is – if people know our thoughts and motives they would not think that we are good. God knows and the Holy Spirit convict us so that we change for the better.
Keep proper perspective of your state – We usually do not consul our heaven Father on what we do each day. We should submit to God everything at all times because He is God and we are not.
Give thanks where it is due….to God – We usually do not count our blessings, instead we complain when things aren’t right. In everything we should give thanks to Him, because He is Jehovah Jireh.
Worship the One who saved you – Give praise and worship to the risen Lord who had paid our ultimate debt by dying on the Cross.
Keep your focus and don’t waiver – you may have many distractions that prevented you from living a life that response to the resurrection, do not waiver stay focus on Jesus. In Christ you are a new creation.
Put God first and give him your all – God gave us His first fruit, Jesus His Only Son. Let our priorities reflect our desire to put Him first in what we do. Show Him He is the Lord of our lives.
Be heavenly minded while on earth – pursue the eternal while doing earthly good. Spread the Good News, and serve others.
