Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,
Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza,
Susanna, and many others
who provided for them out of their resources.

Resurrection of Jesus is the identity and proof of every Christian. If a Christian is not resurrected in Christ , they are not Christians at all but just like any other Worldly person. How do we know that we are resurrected with Christ in our life? If we are resurrected then we do the things Jesus did in his life like preach the Gospel , drive out the demons, heal the sick and use our resources to spread the Kingdom of God. If we say we are resurrected Christians but do not do above things then we are dead Christians who live in Sin and not saved or resurrected in Christ.

In the resurrection we get the in built properties of evangelisation because the Holy spirit who is the main inspiration prompts us to speak about Jesus and good news of the kingdom, fills us with gifts of the Holy spirit to make miracles and fills us with fruits of Charity and love. If a Christian says himself that the work of spreading good news is of Clergy then there is a serious doubt the about resurrection of that person because a resurrected person is inspired to speak the Word of God in their life. On the day of Pentecost Peter and the Disciples started speaking in different languages of tongues and spoke about the Wonders and Salvation in the Name of Jesus.

Christian is a missionary of Christ otherwise he is not Christian at all. I remember about an Alcoholic who experienced the resurrection of Jesus came straight from the Retreat Center to his local market place and started preaching the Word of God, every one was surprised because in the previous Week he was fallen drunk in the same market . It is not suggested in that manner but the point is there is a bubbling joy and zeal which drives a person to Evangelisation at every encounter of Christ. This is spontaneous and not learnt in the Seminary or Theological Classes.

A Christian who do not live his resurrection in his life, Paul says in the first reading : “For if the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised,
and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain;you are still in your sins”. What Paul basically telling is the People who do not have resurrection experience, in theory and practical do not believe in the resurrection of Christ and their faith is not faith at all because they still live in Sin.

Prayer : Lord resurrect me in your Love Amen.
