He is not here; He has risen! Remember how He told you, while He was still with you in Galilee: The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again. [Luke 24:6-7]
Because Christ was raised from the dead, we know that the kingdom of heaven has broken into earth’s history. Our world is now headed for redemption, not disaster. We know that death has been conquered, and we too will be raised from the dead to live forever with Christ. The resurrection gives authority to the church’s witness in the world. The primary message of the early church, was that Jesus Christ had been raised from the dead and was alive forever more. The resurrection helps us find meaning even in great tragedy. No matter what happens to us as we walk with the Lord, the resurrection gives us hope for the future. The resurrection assures us that Christ is alive and ruling His kingdom. He is not legend, He is alive and real. God’s power that brought Jesus back from the dead is available to us so that we can live for Him in an evil world. Christians can look very different from one another, and they can hold widely varying beliefs about politics, life-style, and even theology. But one central belief unites and inspires all true believers---Jesus Christ rose from the dead! Remember the resurrection of Christ proves without a shadow of a doubt that He is who He said He is. The Great I Am, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, fully God and fully Man. What a Savior, give Him praise and glory, for worthy is the Lamb. Amen and Amen. Have a happy Easter and may God richly bless you.
