Happy Resurrection Day! The happiest event in world's history! Without Christ's resurrection, there is no hope! Because Christ lives, we can face anything! Let's celebrate Christ every day! Walk daily in newness of life! Dead to sin, alive in Christ!
"Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your
victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and
the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the
victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Corinthians 15:54b-57)
"I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end He will stand on the earth." (Job 19:25)
"Because I live, you also will live!" ~Jesus (John 14:19b)
I wrote the poem below on the Resurrection Day last year (but I had never posted until now :)).
God's love did win!
Victory over death and sin
For me Christ was crucified
To self, sin, and the world I must die
My Redeemer lives!
All to You, Lord, I give
Your grace still amazes me
Thank You for setting me free
Christ is risen!
All my sins are forgiven
I live with hope and joy always
Because of that first Resurrection Day!

The resurrection of Jesus assures us of God's tomorrow. The glorious hope of living eternally with Him in Heaven enables us to live joyfully now regardless of life's sorrow. Because Christ is risen, we can have assurance of eternal life and resurrected bodies. We can have confidence that He is actively involved in our lives. He is interceding on our behalf. He is preparing a place for us in Heaven and He will return one day to bring us to our everlasting home. He always keeps His promises. He promises that those who abide in Him and do His will would bear much fruit for God's kingdom, enjoy spiritual blessings, and receive guidance from the indwelling Holy Spirit, Who is ever-present.
What does the Resurrection mean to you personally? Who do you say Jesus is?
"I am the Resurrection and the Life. He
who believes in Me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives
and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?" ~Jesus (John 11:25-26) Christ's resurrection changes everything! It proves that Jesus is truly Who He said He is, that His words are always true, that we have been completely forgiven and justified (His death for the payment of our sins was accepted), that our God is not dead (He is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient), and that there is certainly life after death. What you believe about Jesus matters! In fact, it's a matter of life and death!
To my brothers and sisters in Christ: "He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay. Then go quickly and tell His disciples: 'He has risen from the dead." (Matthew 28:6-7a) Come and see! Then go and tell the world about our Living Lord and Savior! Let's
live our lives in such a way that people will know undoubtedly that
Jesus is alive...that He is living in our hearts and guiding our lives! Live to tell what He died to do!
