" 'What must we do to perform the works of God?' Jesus replied: 'This is the work of God: have faith in the One Whom He sent.' " —John 6:28-29

As we enter into the third week of the Easter season, some of you have walked with the risen Christ, listened to Him interpret the Scriptures, and recognized Him in the breaking of the bread (see Lk 24:15, 27, 30-31). Like millions of Christians throughout the centuries, you have cried out: "It is the Lord!" (Jn 21:7)

After meeting your beloved older Brother raised from the dead, you'll never be the same. "The old order has passed away; now all is new!" (2 Cor 5:17) Everything is different — life, people, time, money, possessions, church, and work. You no longer work for "perishable food but for food that remains unto life eternal" (Jn 6:27). Like Andrew, Peter, James, John, and Matthew, some of you are called to leave your jobs. They're not compatible with the risen life. However, most of you are called to do your jobs in a different, risen way. Like Stephen, you will be "filled with grace and power" (Acts 6:8). You will receive such wisdom (see Acts 6:10) that your word will build God's kingdom, bring down the strongholds of the evil one (2 Cor 10:4), and even make you worthy of being persecuted (Acts 5:41).

Work as if a dead God-Man has risen from the dead and now lives in You. Jesus has risen! He lives in you! Work for Him.

Prayer: Father, may I work harder and more joyfully for love of You.
Promise: "The way of truth I have chosen." —Ps 119:30
Praise: Regina works more hours now for God at a volunteer ministry position than she once worked for a salary.
