As you prepare to celebrate Resurrection Sunday, I encourage you to spend some time thinking about what this historic events means to you and me.
Through Christ’s resurrection, He conquered sin and death and offers eternal life to everyone who believes. Romans 10:9-10 says “…if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.”
The resurrection of Jesus assures us of God’s forgiveness. Only Christ can forgive us and free us from the penalty of sin. There is no other name under heaven by which one can be saved, and no other method of salvation other than belief in and identification with Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection and ascension.
Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:13-14, “But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.” Jesus could have lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and even been crucified, but if He didn’t come back to life, none of it would have mattered! Our faith would be powerless and dead.
