“And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.”
Praise God that Jesus was and is Who He said He was!
He died for our sins, spent three days and three nights in the tomb, and then raised victoriously on the third day defeating death, hell, and the grave.
His resurrection made the Gospel possible!
Without the resurrection, our faith would be in vain.
His resurrection provided us the free gift of salvation, if we would only believe in Him.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9
Crowds of people gather daily at the Garden Tomb outside of Jerusalem longing to see the fact that Christ is not in that grave with their own eyes. Some come searching for answers to believe, but many come already knowing the answer…
“He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”
We set aside a weekend every year to celebrate His sacrifice and resurrection, and we should. But the truth is…the Monday after Easter He is STILL our Risen Saviour!
Are we as enthused today as we were yesterday?
Will we be less excited tomorrow to celebrate His resurrection?
Next month? Six months?
Every day is Easter.
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life's narrow way
He lives, He lives, Salvation to impart
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart!
