The resurrection of Jesus Christ was the most monumental event in human history. It provided the ‘abundant life’ while here on earth (John 10;10), eternal life in the hereafter (John 11;26), a direct line of communication with the God of creation (John 14;26), answers to our prayers for the desires of our heart (Mark 11;24), daily, or should we say moment by moment, guidance in all our endeavors in life (Psalms 32;8), and joy unspeakable as we travel along (Matthew 25;21). What else is there? And all that is required is that we believe in Him, focus on His word and place our complete trust in Christ.

Young Samuel said, “Speak for your servant hears”… Do we hear what the Lord says?… Do we have ears to hear the Truth of all ages? Or are we too busy with the world to embrace the greatest opportunity of eternity? There are millions of nominal Christians out there that only understand intellectually what is being said here. But there are a few, a remnant, who the Lord spoke to this morning in a voice that was almost audible and they possess this Truth and are truly alive ‘because He lives’.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow;
Because He lives all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives. (Because He Lives)
