Death, where is your victory?
Death, where is your sting?
The symbol of our faith is not a wooden cross. What Jesus accomplished on the cross is life changing and absolutely amazing! This brings me such JOY!
Here’s the thing, if that is where the story ended on that cross, then our faith would be in nothing!
What gives me the confidence to say that death has no victory and death has no sting is because of what happened on this glorious morning 2,000 years ago!
The grave Jesus was in was BORROWED!!!
He knew He didn’t need His own grave! It is empty and our God LIVES!
Romans 8:11. “The Spirit of God, that raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you.” Grace has been given, to all who chose to believe, through Jesus!
Luke 24:2 “They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in, they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus Christ!”
Acts 2:24 “God raised him up, losing the pangs if death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it!”
John 11:25 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
The churches may be empty today but remember this, the tomb where Christ was placed is empty too! He walked out of that for each and every one of us to live, to share his love, the hope that he gives us, and must importantly we are now reconciled to God!
Be that person and share the good news of Christ Jesus today and every day. A closed church doesn’t mean we stop praising him. Today is a fabulous and wonderful day!
My hope is alive! My peace is alive! My joy is alive! Jesus is alive! And I have been reconciled to the one and only living God!
Happy resurrection day!
