On This Day of Resurrection

Picture 21

In his book, Bridal Intercession, Gary Wiens answers why God sent His Son to die and be raised from the dead for us.

“The whole reason we were chosen from the beginning of time was so that the passionate heart of Jesus would be satisfied! We were redeemed and adopted for a purpose, and that purpose was that Jesus might present us to Himself as His perfect counterpart, washed in His blood, filled with glorious beauty and made fully like Him. We were created and redeemed for romance, and because of that fact, we now have the hope that our deepest longings for intimacy and significance will be satisfied through relationship with Jesus.

The fire that has burned in the heart of God since the beginning of the beginning is the passion to have a partner for His Son! We were chosen to be holy and blameless in Christ before the worlds were made, so that we might become a bride suitable for Him, a partner who is like Him. The good pleasure of the will of God the Father was to have this kind of relationship with human beings, that He might nurture us with perfect love and prepare us to be joined to His Son Jesus in the romance of the ages.”

The fruit of Jesus dying on the cross and then rising from the dead changes the way evangelists preach salvation, pastors counsel people through life, teachers explain the Bible, forerunners prophesy, entrepreneurs run businesses, and intercessors pray.

God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Cor. 1:9)

Thank you Jesus for dying. Thank you Father for raising Him from the dead and Holy Spirit, thank you for allowing me to “Live Lighter Today”.
