Has God Done Anything for You Lately?

He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God. Romans 4:25 (NLT)

This past weekend in church the Pastor asked “How many of you have had God do something great for you?” I raised my hand. I started thinking about my prayers and the answers I’d received. Then, I thought about my outstanding prayers – the prayers without answers still.

How about you? Has God done anything great for you lately? Take a minute…think about it.

As I was thinking through this, the Pastor said “Well Jesus died for you. Wasn’t that great?” We all should have raised our hands. Made me think. As Christians maybe we take the death, life and resurrection of Jesus for granted. After all, to be a Christian you have to check that box. Then you can say, “I’m a believer.”

There is so much more to it than that. Does it make a difference in our lives? Do we realize what a gift we’ve been given? Do we live like people who were on death row and were given a pardon? Do we live like people that are loved beyond more than we can ask or imagine?

My prayer this Easter season is that as we look once again at the GREAT thing God did for us, we become changed. We become a people who always raise our hands, jump up and down and shout Hallelujah whenever we can especially because no matter what our recent answers to prayer are, the greatest thing God did for us happened over 2000 years ago. Let’s not forget.
