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.
