Resurrection Sunday Reflections (Devotion)
For church leaders all over the world, it was one of the biggest weekends of the year.
Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday!
For many, it is one of the only weekends they attend church. That makes it so much more crucial for pastors to prepare a "special" sermon to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ. Attendance is expected to be high and salvations are expected to be high as well. For many pastors, the preparation is weeks, if not months long.
It is so easy leading up to Resurrection Sunday for pastors to get so busy and wrapped up in the preparations, that they forget to spend time in the secret place with the Lord.
Here is my challenge to you, pastors and worship leaders: take a few hours this week to stop, take a breather, and in silence reflect on all that the Lord has done.
It's great to celebrate with your church staff and your congregation, but don't forget to be still before the Lord this week and have that one-on-one time with the Father. After all, He alone deserves all the glory, all the honor, all the praise. It is all for Him, to Him, through Him, and because of Him. If we are too busy this week talking about all that the Lord has done, we may neglect to remember this truth.
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10)
In the midst of the celebrations and excitement this week, remember to be still before God.
