4 Easter

Revelation 7:13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, robed in white, and where have they come from?”

John has just experienced a vision of a vast, uncountable multitude from all nations, languages, and races, and they are all robed in white. He sees the church—the followers of Christ—totally wrapped up in the Word. In this vision, the people are completely immersed in God’s healing and cleansing grace, and they all rejoice.

John sees the church steeped in extraordinary, blessed grace. A few times in my life, I have experienced that exuberant joy, often at the end of a Christian retreat or a Cursillo renewal conference. When I return to the rigors of daily life, the memory sustains me and, guided by the Good Shepherd, I walk through death’s shadows to the springs of living water.

MOVING FORWARD: Is it possible for you to join a special intentional time with fellow Christians in a retreat or weekend?
