Risen With Christ to a New Life: Family Builders
FAMILY BUILDERS: Lessons for the Whole Family During Easter
Christians celebrate Easter as the anniversary of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. But the holiday also serves as a reminder to believers of all ages that they also are resurrected with Christ!
As Easter approaches, Family Builders encourages Christians to meditate on the meaning of their new life in the risen Christ and the glorious benefits that come with it. Along with benefits comes the responsibility to live according to God's Word and walk in His holiness—vital characteristics of the resurrected life. Failure to submit to the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God can prevent believers from receiving the benefits Jesus purchased for them through His death, burial, and resurrection.
FAMILY BUILDERS FOR ADULTS
Living in the Resurrection
As you meditate on the reality of the Resurrection this month, start by taking the time to realize that you, too, are risen with Christ! The scripture says, "Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on the earth" (Col. 3:1–2 NASB). One of the reasons you should consider things above is because in God's eyes that's where you are (Eph. 2:6). You are seated in a place of blessing and spiritual strength to live and walk in the newness of resurrection life.
