Hallelujah! Jesus is risen from the grave!
In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. – Matthew 28:1-7
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. His resurrection validates that He is the Son of God and Messiah. Romans 1:4 says Jesus Christ “was declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. It proves His divine nature and sinless character.
The Christian faith sets apart from other religions on earth because of Jesus’ resurrection. It makes true and reliable. This faith must be appropriate and biblical. In Peter 1:21, Peter emphasizes how we come to believe in God through Jesus. Jesus Christ was raised so that we would trust and hope in God, our heavenly Father.
Through His death on the cross and His resurrection, Jesus obtained redemption for anyone who believes in Him as Lord. Your name is already written in the book of life. Sin has no hold over you; neither does death.
Jesus’ resurrection gives us power. The power over every difficulty we may ever face, over every disease and sickness, and to say no to sin. It provides us with the ability to live according to God’s word.
There is also hope because we know the story of our Savior. Jesus’ resurrection shows that even our life walks through the valley of death in the presence of many enemies, we can still have hope. We can have confidence in our Father because we know what He did for Jesus. That’s why when our life is in trouble when we face rejection or physical suffering; we know that it’s not the end.
When we follow the paths of Jesus into suffering, we know we’ll also follow Him to glory. For in Christ, we are more than conquerors (Romans 8:37).
God deserves all of our praise and thanksgiving. Our salvation is secure because He has made it, and now, we stand redeemed!
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is important because it proves who Jesus is. It displays that God has the power to raise us from the dead. It ensures that the bodies of those who believe in Christ will not remain dead but will be resurrected unto eternal life.
Everyone can receive forgiveness and be redeemed. Let Jesus have fellowship with you. If He is knocking at the door of your heart right now, you can talk to God in prayer. Repent and believe in Him. Admit that you are a sinner, deserving of eternal death in hell. Admit that you are helpless to save yourself. Then, humbly come to Christ. Ask Him to forgive you and reconcile you to God. Also, ask Him to rule your life to make you a person who loves and obeys the Lord Jesus Christ. Then claim God’s promises that “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).
