《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” (1Co 15:20)
Meditation one: When people of the world ask God, “Where are You when we suffer?” Have we ever thought, “Where are we when Jesus was crucified?” In fact, the crucifixion of Jesus is to resolve the suffering of human. About two thousand years ago, Christ died for our sins and was also raised for us according to the Scriptures (1Co 15:3-4). The death of Christ is to solve the problem of sin, and the resurrection of Christ is to solve the problem of death.
Meditation two: Why is Christ’s resurrection important? It is to witness the power of God. If He created all things in the universe, He surely has the power to control it, and only the God who created life can resurrect a life. The resurrection of Jesus from the tomb shows that He has the supreme authority over life and death.
Prayer: Praise God because You “give us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1Co 15:57)! Because of the resurrection of Christ, we have a brand new life and the assurance of eternal life; because of the resurrection of Christ, we can experience Your presence and peace even in tribulation. Please use me to enthusiastically preach the gospel in this restless world and bring people to the Lord. I pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen!
Intercession: Pray for the COVIC-19 epidemic around the world. May God give the leaders of all nations a humble heart, willing to put aside prejudices and spare no effort to rescue the current epidemic situation, work together to develop applicable policies to control the virus, so that various epidemic prevention materials can be effectively controlled and utilized. In particular, pray for Italy, Spain, Iran, China, South Korea, and the United States, which have encountered severe catastrophes.
