As I prepared for Easter Sunday my emotions felt flat. There wasn’t anything specifically wrong, yet I felt physically and mentally weary from the cares of life.

I’m glad my faith doesn’t rely on feelings because on Resurrection Sunday I still was able to quietly rejoice in confidence of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and what that means for those who believe in him.

John Piper wrote a short, powerful devotional entitled The Stupendous Reality of Being “in Christ Jesus.” I encourage you to read it and consider what Jesus Christ means to you.
