“He is not here; He has risen, just like He said.” ~ Matthew 28:6
The resurrection of Jesus was prophesied by the prophets of old, but for those alive at the time of its fulfillment, it seemingly took everyone by surprise.
First of all, Jesus didn’t exactly meet their expectations of how he would enter into humanity’s realm. Following this pattern, his death certainly did not come as they imagined it might unfold. But it occurred nonetheless… On God’s terms and meeting heaven’s demands that the sinless Lamb of God would take on the sin of mankind, taking our place on that cruel Cross so that you and I could spend eternity with Him. Jesus bridged the gap that sin created and that you and I could never repay. He paid for our ransom!
I am so grateful that God had a plan of redemption! What love the Father has for us!
Isn’t it wonderful that God’s plan didn’t end on the Cross of Calvary?!
No, death would not have its final say. Not this time. For despite the humanity Jesus bore, residing on the inside of Him was Resurrection Power this world had never known!!
“Up from the grave He arose, with a mighty triumph o’er His foes! He arose! Hallelujah, Christ arose!”
Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, death was defeated and sin’s curse was broken. Now, we are free to choose to accept this precious gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
“I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me.” ~ John 14:6
Happy Resurrection Day! Jesus is alive!
