Happy Resurrection Day!

There shall be
no more death.

Over 2,000 years ago, Christ burst forth from the grave, triumphant.

He was victorious over sin, death, and satan.

On the first day, Jesus died on the cross.

During the second day, His lifeless body lay in that virgin tomb.

But then, early the next day, the third day, He was raised from the dead.

He died because of our sins.
He was raised because believers are justified.

We Christians believe that the most momentous things happened at the cross.

He bore the sin of the world - including our sins, all of them - in His body on the cross.

We were under the wrath of God.
But He took our punishment for us.

ISA 53:5-6

He loved you - no matter who you are - and gave Himself up for you also.

If you are not a believer in Christ, you still face that judgment.

HEB 9:27-28

Most people think that right and wrong are relative, easily bent to suit the circumstances.

All have sinned,
and fall short of the glory of God.

The penalty for sin is death.

God is perfectly fair, perfectly just, perfectly holy.
His Law is perfect.

Who can argue that murder should go unpunished?

God is love. And He is sovereign. He can be merciful to whomever He chooses.

He postponed executing that death sentence -temporarily.

There will be a day of judgment, a day of wrath, for all who remain in unbelief.

God has provided a way to rescue every person from this final death sentence.

Charles Dickens wrote
A Tale of Two Cities.

The plot revolves around a man by the name of
Sidney Carton.


That was a fictional account.
Now it’s time for the real thing.

JOH 19:28-30

God ordained that His perfect Son would die in place of guilty, wretched humanity.

When any person listens to the truth about what Jesus did for them, and believes-

God will credit to that person the full merits of the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ.

God made the sinless One sin itself, so that whoever believes in Him has eternal life.

That person will then be declared righteous: perfectly acceptable
in God’s eyes forever.

Jesus said,
“It is finished”.

MAT 28:1-10

Thirty years later, the apostle Paul identified many eyewitnesses to the resurrected Christ

- including himself! This is powerful proof that Jesus came out of that tomb.

1CO 15:3-9

Do not persist in your unbelief. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you too will be saved!

There is no more death, no more pain, no more sorrow, no more tears, for Him.

The Scriptures say that we receive eternal life when we believe in Christ.

One day soon, Jesus will come to bring us home to His Father’s house.

We will have a glorified body -
just like His!

PHI 3:20-21

And then there will be no more death, or sorrow, or pain, or tears for us, either.

REV 21:4

Christ our Lord is risen today - and we believers are raised with Him! Alleluia!
