Celebration of the Resurrection Day has passed. Jesus’ resurrection is as true today as it was yesterday. Great news is that that Spirit is still alive, well, and active in Christians today!

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you.

Notice that this says He will quicken our MORTAL bodies! That means right here, right now, while we are still living on planet earth, He will quicken us. So what happens if we are “quickened?” I believe we are revived, renewed, re-invigorated, refreshed.

If that Spirit could raise a dead man, can’t he also raise you? Better than caffeine. You can’t put enough caffeine in a dead man to raise him up. At least as far as I know. Did anyone ever try? 😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

      Sorry to be so late acknowledging this comment. I thank you for it. When one of those long ago songs begin a tape in my ear, I often find it leads me to an idea for a blog. Thank you.

    Hmm, I know I ‘feel’ dead some mornings until I get my caffeine! But actually raising the dead? I’ll leave that to apostles and the miracle working power of the Holy Spirit. I know that someday I will arise and see my Redeemer face to face! 🤠
