DAY 10 of 10 - APRIL 19, 2022 Special Devotion Written by Dr. Dan Bolin - Taking a Deeper Look into the Wonder of Easter
“The Resurrection completes the inauguration of God’s kingdom. . . . It is the decisive event demonstrating that God’s kingdom really has been launched on earth as it is in heaven. The message of Easter is that God’s new world has been unveiled in Jesus Christ and that you’re now invited to belong to it.” – N.T. Wright

Following the Easter events, Jesus’ announced His final assignment: “Go and make disciples.” (Matthew 28:19a) This command is our Great Commission. Our assignment is to share the wonderful news of Easter with others, inviting people to accept the love and life God provides through the death and resurrection of His Son, and to explain the truth of Scripture to those who believe. Sometime earlier Jesus had been asked to identify the greatest commandment. He responded, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39) The Greatest Commandment and the Great Commission are twin pillars of Christianity, but there is a reason that the Greatest Commandment comes before the Great Commission. Our work to reach the world must flow from a heart of love. Easter demonstrates the priority of love as the source of authentic actions. “For God so loved the world – that he gave. . . “ . (John 3:16) As we move past Easter, let’s recommit to the Greatest Commandment, loving God and others, and then reengage to fulfill the Great Commission.
