II Corinthians 13:5

‘‘Test yourselves and find out if you really are true to your faith. If you pass the test, you will discover that Christ is living in you. But if Christ isn’t living in you, you have failed.’’ 2 Corinthians 13:5

We think of the resurrection as something of long ago. We sing songs about it, re-enact events leading up to the resurrection, decorate crosses, plan festivities, and celebrate special services at sunrise to commemorate the importance of that first Easter Sunday, two millennia ago. From Paul’s words to the believers in Corinth, if that is all we do, we have completely missed the point of the resurrection.


Tenth Day (10 of 50)
Series: Easter Devotional
Christopher Harbin
Deuteronomy 4:9-10

‘‘You must be very careful not to forget the things you have seen God do for you. Keep reminding yourselves, and tell your children and grandchildren as well. Do you remember the day you stood in Yahweh’s presence at Mount Sinai? Yahweh said, ‘Moses, bring the people of Israel here. I want to speak to them so they will obey me as long as they live, and so they will teach their children to obey me, too.’’’ Deuteronomy 4:9-10

We often forget that storytelling is a Biblical mandate. We get caught up in good things like Bible study and rehearsing the canonized stories of faith. We forget that there is a whole other sequence of faith stories. They are our own stories. They are the stories of how God has dealt with us and brought us through our own experiences of redemption from Egyptian bondages.
