Here in lies our hope…..
And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. 1 Cor 15:17 NKJV
If Jesus Christ did not rise from the grave then He was not who he said He was. If He was not who He said he was then He was not the Lamb of God and did not die for our sins. If He did not die for our sins then we are still in our sins and doomed to be separated from God. For the Law and the shedding of the blood of lambs and goats can not wash away sin but only cover them up until something better (The Savior) came along. If He did not defeat sin and death then we are doomed…..
But He did rise and when He died the veil in the Temple was torn in half from top to bottom signifying that we can boldly go directly to God because of the life-changing work that Jesus did that day.
He is alive! No great mystery. No Doctrinal dissertation. No religious dogma. No rules and regulations. No fees to be paid or tolls to pass threw.
Just open up your heart and let Him Love You!
Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and have dinner with him, and he with Me. Rev 3:20 HSCB
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 KJV
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 1:23 NKJV
As we all celebrate this Sunday in a new socially distanced safe way remember that our hope is in the Lord Jesus Who rose from the dead some two thousand years ago today – and if He be risen than we are free from our sins and will also rise again – and be with Him forever!!
Happy Resurrection Sunday
