Guardians of Ancora Bible Plan: Jesus is Alive!

Day 1 of 5 • This day’s reading

Devotional

WELCOME TO THESE DEVOTIONS AND TO GUARDIANS OF ANCORA!

FOREVER

Life. Death. That’s the normal order of things. You live and then you die, somehow, somewhere, and sometime. Period. Life is over.

Life. Death. Life? That’s not the normal order of things. A new ‘life’ has popped up at the end. That doesn’t happen, does it?

It does if you’re God! The God of the impossible brings life after death. He brings it to his Son in the first instance. The ultimate enemy – death – conquered, once and for all. The battle is won.

Not only is death defeated, but this all-time victory can be ours as well. We too can participate in life after death if we trust in Jesus. He gives new life, in him, with God, forever. Wow!

TALKABOUT

What’s the very best day you can remember? Tell each other about it. Perhaps a special family event, or a seasonal celebration? A personal achievement or a simple, happy day?

TALKING WITH GOD TOGETHER

It’s been called ‘the greatest day in history’: the day when Jesus was alive again. Thank God for your special days and for the most-special of all days.

You’re in a garden outside Jerusalem. It’s three days after Jesus was arrested, put to death on a cross and then buried. Mary Magdalene has already been to the tomb to find it empty. She’s told Jesus’ other friends, and now they are on their way to see for themselves.
