In April, we celebrated the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The resurrection of Jesus is the most powerful evidence of our faith. The resurrection is proof that He is more than just a mere man; He is the true and LIVING Son of God. It proves He has the power to take away our sins. It proves that the story did not end at Calvary.
We often relegate our celebration to a season or time of year, but we should celebrate the resurrection every day!
We celebrate the resurrection every day because:
- The resurrection is a reminder of unfailing love.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
- The resurrection is a reminder of amazing grace.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8
- The resurrection is the reality of eternity.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:3-4
- Today, right now, if you’ve accepted Jesus as Savior, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives is you! We are alive in Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit lives in us.
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11
The resurrection of Jesus holds a promise for now and for the future!
Now, we have been raised from spiritual death to life in Christ! The Father did all this so we could walk with Him and experience spiritual life. And one day, our physical bodies will be resurrected, and we will live forever with Him!
Yes! The resurrection truly changed everything!
