Matthew 28:5,6 (NIV)
‘The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay”.
I wasn’t sure about this quote and not 100% sure of its relevance. My Life Application Bible breaks down verses 5-7 “The angel who announced the good news of the resurrection to the women gave them four messages. (1) Do not be afraid. The reality of resurrection brings joy, not fear. When you are afraid, remember the empty tomb. (2) He is not here. Jesus is not dead and is not to be looked for among the dead. He is alive with his people. (3) Come and see. The women could check the evidence for themselves. The tomb was empty then, and it is empty today. The resurrection is a historical fact. (4) Go quickly and spread the joy of the resurrection. We too are to spread the great news about Jesus’ resurrection.”
This now says to me – Jesus lives on in us – as Christians we are to spread His words to the people.
‘Trust in the LORD with all your heart, don’t lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.’
I love this verse. Acknowledge the Lord. Trust Him with everything. Trust Him with your life and he will guide you on the right path. He will make everything OK – as long as you trust in Him, that he will do the right thing.
Day 5 of the Daniel Fast and it’s getting easier. I am no longer feeling hungry (well, no more than usual anyway!). I am only doing the Daniel Fast for 10 days, so my last day will be Saturday 11th – and then I will just do a normal fast and cut something out. I’m still not decided on what I will cut out yet. Our Pastor mentioned the ABC Fast – where you fast Alcohol, Bread & Butter and Chocolate and Sweets. I wonder if that includes Cake too??
