This is the only day in this Devotional Series that focuses on an Easter Angel rather than Christ’s roles and provisions. However, the Easter Angel is completely focused on Jesus. So, through the eyes and obedience of a mighty angel, we look at the wonder of Christ:
That has been the content of this week’s material.
God sent the Easter Angel down to earth from Heaven after Jesus had already raised from the dead on Sunday morning. The angel was so electric, powerful, and pure, that he made superheroes look like children at play. But this actually happened. The angel’s landing on earth likely shook the planet.
Why did the Easter Angel carry out those detailed orders with precision and zeal? Evidently, he knew Jesus is every provision we explored this week.
How he, and many other angels, must have pondered the deep, abiding love God has for His people! They likely saw Jesus pour sincere care into every individual when He lived as a man on earth. Consequently, they must have been filled with wonder – and perhaps horror – at the crucifixion. Additionally, they must have worshipped in awe at the resurrection. What a brilliant and strategic plan – carried out with precision and deep wisdom. God knows exactly how to defeat all His (and your) enemies!
How privileged you are to be called a “son” or “daughter” of the living God – because of all the provisions of Christ! We should all be as obedient and responsive as God’s mighty angels!
This is the time to pull out all the stops! Celebrate Resurrection Day with all your heart! Engage every meaningful tradition you treasure. The hunt (if you do it today), special food, some treats, games, visits with dear friends and/or family, story time with children, adults reading the Scripture story, singing, expressing gratitude to God. All these activities are truly fun, and especially meaningful to celebrate JESUS!
The teaching point just mentioned is this. God wants you to find yourself – in Christ! He wants you to be the person He created. That means He wants you to find your life purpose and be a balanced Jesus follower. When you open your heart to all the provisions and roles Christ provides for you, your influence in this world – yes, in your own world – automatically begins to happen!
Why not point others to Jesus – like the Easter Angel did?
Because of Easter, your purpose is – rejoicing in unprecedented, unexplainable, undeserved GRACE from God! Live a balanced life – in the Risen Christ!
