March is a special month. It is filled
with eagerness that touches the lives of
almost everyone concerned. For most of
us, it means that Spring is near. Also, it
means government time is changing our
lives again. For the sports enthusiasts,
the month is known as March Madness.
For others, they watch for the little
yellow lilies to poke their heads up in
the cold. For the Christian, we are one
month closer to the coming of Jesus, in
bringing a rapture to the Church
worldwide. Graves will burst open and we shall be changed from mortality to immortality raised to be ever present with the Lord. While we live in an ever- changing world, there are some things that even the government can’t change. Regardless of the time, the word of God stands true and is unchanging. Those who live like it doesn’t exist and those who declare we don’t need God, or His word any longer, and those who want to pass laws against God’s word, claiming it as a hate book and should be banned from their state, or in fact the nation, are in for an awakening. The power of God is unlimited! His word is unchanging and He is not subject to man’s laws or criteria. He is still in charge of the universe! When individuals feel that they have the ultimate control, they are setting themselves up for some serious judgement crises. March sets us up for a departure from the old and opens the door to the fresh new insights of our year. Easter this year comes at a little later time than usual. Normally this time of year we celebrate Palm Sunday and the resurrection in the closing days of March. The resurrection makes the difference between life and death. Had Jesus never rose from the dead, then death would still be the ultimate end for every person. But today, for the Christian, death holds no threat. For in that I live, I live unto the Lord; and if I die and leave this life, then I shall be ever present with the Lord. Death no longer has a “sting” for the child of God. Do you know Him today?
