Psalm 118:24

Mar 28, 2024    Pastor Josh Lewis

Every day is a gift from God to be celebrated! As long as there is breath in our lungs, we can praise the Lord. This is all true, but I don’t want us to miss an important reality. There is a reason WHY we can celebrate each new day, and that is because of one very special day—the day that Jesus rose from the grave and defeated sin and death. Without the resurrection, there is only death without victory. Without the resurrection, we would be living each day under the condemnation of sin. Through faith in the resurrected Christ, we are set free!

PASSAGE: Psalm 118:24 - "This is the day that the Lord has made;

    let us rejoice and be glad in it."

PAUSE: The Day of the Resurrection is the most significant day ever! Easter is the day that gives all other day’s opportunities, a reason to be glad. Too often, this is just quoted generically, but this day is about Easter. As believers, we look back instead of forward to that day, so let us rejoice and be glad in every new day.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, forgive me for having days where I grumble and complain. Please help me to see every day through the lens of Easter.
