The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Today and every day is a celebration of Jesus Christ’s resurrection. The resurrection of Jesus is the source of salvation for every man, woman, and child who has received Him as Lord and Savior. Christ being raised from the dead gives every Christian the hope we need knowing that our worship is not in vain. The resurrection of Jesus Christ removed the sting of death from all believers and assured the promise that to be absent from the physical body is to be in His presence. The resurrection of Jesus Christ means every Christian has received forgiveness. In addition to forgiveness, each Christain is given power over our enemy, the devil, according to Luke 10:19.
With the resurrection of Jesus on the third day, we have the assurance of salvation by confessing our sins with our mouth and believing with our heart (Romans 10:9-10). The importance of Christ’s resurrection is essential today because of darkness in a sinful world. A world where sin and lawlessness are running rampant. The same kind of world that Jesus prophesied would be before he comes.
Today’s Church is still that beacon of light in a dark world. We (i.e., The Church) must continue to hold up the bloodstain banner of Jesus Christ. His word is still alive, and it will never fail because the Living Word is seated at the right hand of God, the Father.
Jesus died for our sins and paid the ultimate price for all of us. God, the Father, gave us His only begotten Son that we might have the right to the tree of life (2 Corinthians 5:21). For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin so that we would receive God’s approval through Him.
Today, we have a high priest, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, seated in power at God’s right hand. He is our advocate, our intercessor, our healer, and our deliverer. Let us celebrate His life by going into all of the world and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
