A Risen Savior

It is dark. He takes His disciples and they go to the garden.
"Stay here and watch with Me. Watch and pray."

Three times He asked them to do this. Yet, they are too tired.
So they sleep.

A few hours down the road they all leave Him,
deny they know Him.

43 days later they are all in one place on their knees. Waiting for 10 days. The command was not to depart from Jerusalem until they will receive the Holy Spirit. 
And they complied.

How comes? They could not spend a few hours on their knees. 
Now, they spend 10 days.
What made the difference?

The vision of a different Savior. A risen One.
This is what made the difference.

Is your Savior still on the cross or in the grave?
Or is He risen from the dead?

If He was truly risen, than you would realize your need
for the Holy Spirit and you would be on your knees
begging for His presence in your life.

I serve a risen Savior...

"Why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here, but is risen..."
Luke 24:5,6
