Day 23

The First of New Creation

from the Everything New reading plan

John 20:1-18, 1 Corinthians 15:1-26, Philippians 3:20-21, 1 Peter 1:3, Psalm 71:20

BY She Reads Truth

In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.

Scripture tells us that Jesus died and was resurrected. But it also teaches that this is just the beginning. Jesus is the first of what God is doing for the rest of creation, bringing what is dead to new life. 

After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about what it means for us to be raised to life because Jesus was raised first. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.

    I am praying to take away all sort of bitterness , fists of anger away from being . I lay it at His feet , Heavenly Father please deliver me , you have done it in other aspects of my life . Please do it in this area . I am ashamed of it . I feel it would destroy my reputation, and hurt the people I love. I lay it down , May experience grace and healing in this area too .

    Something that stood out to me today was Mary immediately recognizing Jesus when he said her name. Such an intimate moment and reminds me that Jesus knows me by name and is a gentle and loving Savior.
