Jesus said to her, “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. John 11:25-26

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very heartbeat of Christianity. However, though most Americans view Easter as a religious celebration, many do not know why.

A recent Barna Group study asked adult Americans what Easter means to them…

While 67% consider Easter a religious holiday, there was some serious confusion: 2% of those said Easter is about the “birth of Christ”; another 2% indicated it was about the “rebirth of Jesus”; and 1% said it celebrates “the second coming of Jesus.”

An additional 3% said Easter is a celebration of spring, or a pagan holiday.

Of the 67% who acknowledged Easter as a religious holiday…only 42% rightly identified the resurrection of Jesus as the true meaning of Easter!

HE is Risen

Dear one, do not be confused…our salvation depends on faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Romans 10:9 tells us, “if you confess with your mouth ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

In 1 Corinthians Paul states, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen sleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.”

Then Paul victoriously announces, “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.” The resurrection of Jesus Christ secured our justification; He died for our sins and was raised for our justification.

Resurrection Sunday Blessings

I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Philippians 3:10-12

May your Resurrection Sunday be blessed with the truth, knowledge, light and life of the resurrection of Jesus in your heart…and in your life.

Why the Resurrection? Jesus, who was sinless, went to the cross to die for our sins…the sins of our mind, our words, and our actions.

Was that not enough? Well, not quite. Before His death, Jesus promised eternal life to all those who followed Him.

If the story just ended with His death, Jesus would be remembered as a delusional man living a lie…who was crucified and died.

However, His Resurrection…that miraculous rising on the third day after the Crucifixion, demonstrates Jesus’ divine victory over death, and gives us hope for eternal life with Him. For, it is through His Resurrection, that we who believe in Him, receive deliverance from the evil and darkness of the world and are transported into the purity and light of an eternity with our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Our ‘old man’ was crucified; buried with Jesus. Then, renewed and restored in His Resurrection.

It is through Him and Him alone, that we have salvation. His Resurrection gave us that way of escape. It is through Him and Him alone, that we are delivered; rescued, recovered and saved from a life of sin…and have received the promise of eternal life in His kingdom. Our hope, faith and life is in Jesus alone.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”    –John 3:16

It is through Him that we are blood-bought children of the King of Kings, made righteous in His death and in His Resurrection.

The Resurrection is the true foundation of Christianity. Without it, we could not have relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Thank You Abba Father…for sending Your one and only Son, JESUS CHRIST to live, die…and resurrect for us.
