He’s Alive!!

By James C. Stephens

February 16, 2019

I recall as a new Christian being very depressed because I began to see my sinful nature. And then it dawned on me. “Wait a minute! I couldn’t recognize my sin unless I was indwelt by the Holy Spirit. The light went on and I was filled with such joy!! I started telling my fellow believers at church, He’s alive!” To which they nonchalantly replied, Yes, and?” My joy was unquenchable, exhuberant with the realization that our LORD is very much alive. He is risen! He is risen! He is risen! And it wasn’t even Resurrection Sunday! I am now 67 and in spite of infirmities, trials and tribulations, in spite of painful betrayals of family and fellow believers, I am more in love with Him today than ever. Be encouraged fellow believers to read His word, commune with Him first thing every morning, His promises can be trusted. He will conform us into the likeness of His dear Son Jesus. When we have been tried, we shall come forth as pure gold, with faces as bright as the morning sun. Can I get an amen to that? He is risen!
