Embossed Jesus…….It’s a Dawna Day!

This Easter weekend, I found one word echoing in my head- raised, raised, raised.

I admit this year Easter felt rushed. It felt like another holiday filled with expectations and commitments. I longed to get close to Jesus; I longed to experience him on his glorious day. After hearing “raised” so many times, and although I knew the meaning, I found myself looking up the definition and it was the synonym that brought me into his presence.
Embossed. The free-dictionary clearly states that the synonym for “raised” is “embossed.”
You may think okay, “On the third day Jesus was embossed from the dead?” Yes, I believe he was.
Embossed ~ Provided with something to increase it’s beauty or distinguish.
When Jesus entered the room after being crucified, I bet his disciples would tell you he never looked so good.
Close your eyes for a moment. Can you see your savior just days after being burdened unto death, days after beatings and scourging, days after defeating death/Satan, just hours after being reunited with the father? Yes indeed, he would be embossed with the glow of God. The Glory of his love blinding, shining, imagine the big smile spread across his face lovely touching everyone, hugging them, kissing them knowing It is done, love will reign forever and ever.
Yes his beauty increased to immeasurable heights that glorious day. Was he distinguishable among men? Well I don’t have to answer that. My prayer for you dear sister is that you hear the words of Paul in Colossians 3:1… Since then, you have been raised with Christ.

Should we not walk into rooms with the same smile and glow about us, rejoicing? We are alive, ALIVE, we were dead and now alive, raised with Christ! I don’t know about you, but when I meditate on this fact I am instantly brought into his presence, giddy with excitement, in awe of his sacrifice, my praises soar, his love knows no bounds, eternity with Christ awaits.
Embossed YES! Raised Halleluiah!!!

Sorry to hear that it felt so rushed. Easter and Good Friday was truly a day of reflecting, I did allot of thinking about those who don't know Him, and I watched the Passion of Christ and just wept. I even cried out to God saying it wasn't fair for them to do Him the way that they did, but I know it was God's plan. Hard pill to swallow seeing Him beaten the way He was and how disrespected they was to Him.

And then after I did that this small voice on the inside of me said " Desi don't you do the same thing when you don't be obedient to Me? that hurt, because we do it just like they do. Also I thought about the religious people of today they act just like they did when Christ walked the earth no different. Seems like to me we have a long way to go..

I truly enjoyed it and spending time with my daughter and baby was great and the word given in service was awesome. I believe this was the best Holy Week I had in a long time.

I love that meaning! Jesus was embossed from the dead. I praise God that my Savoir is not hanging on a cross or lying in a tomb, but alive and well!

Dawna, this is my favorite post from you! There is something delicate and lovely about the word "embossed," you just mentally took Him to a deeper more significant place for me. I love this… "Yes indeed, he would be embossed with the glow of God. The Glory of his love blinding, shining, imagine the big smile spread across his face lovely touching everyone, hugging them, kissing them knowing It is done, love will reign forever and ever." Our Hope is wrapped up in that smile… in that statement "It is done." Beautiful. Love you!
