Focus Scriptures:
John 3:16 KJV  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Rom 8:11 KJV  “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”

There is no more powerful news to report than Jesus lives.  While we live in a time full of negativity and seemingly unending reports of deaths and disasters, it is so assuring to be able to report that our Savior lives!

People you encounter every day need to hear that not only did Jesus die for all of our sins, but that He also rose from the grave by the power of the Holy Spirit.  That same power is available to each of us as believers.  Now that’s great news!

Instead of only focusing on the sinful ways of others that lead to death, love them enough to give the hope of the Gospel.  Let them know that Jesus died on the cross for their sins.  Tell them that even though Jesus was crucified, God raised Him from the dead on the third day.  Love them enough to tell them that if we trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior, we also will rise.  

You and I don’t have to wait until we die to rise.  Even now, Jesus will lift you up from every circumstance meant to keep you down.

Share the love.  Tell others that Jesus lives!
