HE is Risen. Indeed.

HE is Risen!

He is risen, indeed!

Today we celebrate the most important single event in all of human history, the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Prior to the resurrection, the most important event had been His death for our sins–just three days earlier. But His death would have been meaningless, had He not risen.

When upon the cross Jesus said, “it is finished,” He was referring to His mission: which was to pay the penalty for all of our sins; and when He said that mission had been accomplished, He maintained that the debt that we all owe to God for our rebellion had been fully paid.

His resurrection sealed the deal.

He “was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.” (Romans‬ ‭4:25‬)

I subscribe to a word for the day from the Miriam-Webster Dictionary. Today’s word was Resurrection.

Noun | rez-uh-REK-shun

Definition:

1 a: (capitalized Resurrection) : the rising of Christ from the dead

1 b: (often capitalized Resurrection) : the rising again to life of all the human dead before the final judgment

1 c: the state of one risen from the dead

Believing and confessing 1a exempts a person from having to answer for his/her sins as in 1b, and makes 1c an absolute certainty. The believer is raised to everlasting life!

Romans 10:9,10 says “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

‭‭Yes, He Is Risen.

Indeed.

Happy Resurrection Sunday, everyone!
