Matthew 28:9 ” Suddenly Jesus met them. ‘Greetings,’ He said. They came to Him, clasped His feet and worshiped Him.”

The women had just left the empty tomb when they were confronted by the risen Jesus.  They did not flee but rather fell prostrate at His feet.  There will be a time in all our lives when we too will come face to face with Jesus…and the decision becomes ours…do we turn our back and run…or do we worship at His feet.

Philippians 3:10-11 ” I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.”

These scriptures beg the question…”What are You asking of me Lord?”  Foremost, Jesus is asking for commitment.  Not just lip service, or Sunday only acknowledgement… No, He’s asking for sold-out, unwavering determination to follow Him no matter  the cost.  Jesus is also asking for  conviction.  That’s a gut belief that He died on the Cross and rose again for me so that I may have eternal life.  Then too, Jesus is asking for conformity.  He wants me to become more like Him.  Finally, Jesus is asking that I give up control.  Now this is probably the most frightening but the most freeing request of His…For to go deeper with Jesus means releasing command of myself and trusting Him more.
