Daily Fountain 2017 - I Have Seen The Lord






Friday April 21

Bible Reading:     John 20: 1-18

Topic:         I Have Seen The Lord!

The resurrection of Jesus is the GREATEST EVENT in human history and marks the most profound demonstration of God's Power.

In commemorating the resurrection on Easter day we rejoice that we serve a Living God unlike man-made religions whose founders are dead and buried. We also live in the hope of resurrection to eternal life at the end of time.

In St. John's account of the resurrection, Mary Magdalene from whom Jesus cast out evil spirits (Lk. 8: 2-3) stands out. She in appreciation dedicated her lifetime to serving the Lord.

At the sepulchre when others including two of Jesus' Disciples gave up hope of seeing Jesus' Body, she tarried. She was rewarded by being the first to see the Risen Saviour and Lord and to announce it to the world: "I have seen the Lord, and He has spoken to me" (v. 18)

Have you experienced the Risen Lord and the Power of His Resurrection?
And are you witnessing His Resurrection to all around you?
If you are, be sure of His promise "..... that your labour is not in vain in the Lord" (1 Cor. 15: 58)

Prayer:

Lord help me to always appreciate Your grace upon my life brought by Your death and resurrection, Amen

Memory Verse    John 20: 17

"Jesus saith unto her, Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My Father; but go to my brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto My Father and your Father and to My God and your God"
