“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” I Corinthians 15:3-4.
May this Easter season be a time of remembering the blessed gift God gave of His Son that we might have eternal life. When an individual receives this blessed gift of the Gospel, Christ dwells in his heart. This indwelling Christ is ready to direct and control each thought and action of our life. However, we must consent to this direction and control. This is Christian self government, the spirit of the law.
As we rejoice this Easter season in this wonderful gift, may we be reminded that this gift of self government is ours throughout our life. We simply must consent to God’s government in our lives. As we pass on to our children and grandchildren the good news of salvation, may we also share the good news that we can be governed by God on a daily basis.
Let us never forget that Christ and Christianity are the basis for self government and self government is the foundation upon which this nation was built and by which it must be restored.
