A few months ago, I was praying about what God wanted me to share this Easter. The Holy Spirit drew my attention to the earthquakes surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus. Matthew records two of them. One the day Jesus died and another on the morning of His resurrection.
From these passages, I felt like the Holy Spirit planted a seed in my heart with just one word – SHAKEN – The more I looked at those passages, the more I felt like He was saying sometimes I need to shake things up in order to get people to pay attention.
Little did I know that we would be experiencing a shaking of our own this Easter season as the Corona Virus Crisis has really shaken things up for all of us. And maybe, just maybe, what the Lord revealed to me about the shaking of the events of Jesus crucifixion and resurrection apply to our own shaking today.
- Shaken that we might BELIEVE
- Shaken that we might WAKE UP
- Shaken that we might BE READY
- Shaken that we might BE PURIFIED
