“Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us.
This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
– Isaiah 25:9, ESV

Resurrection Sunday is more than the miracle of a man coming back to life.

It is the fulfillment of David’s prophecy in the Psalms.

For You will not abandon me to Sheol; you will not allow Your Faithful One to see decay. (Psalm 16:10)

It is the making-true of the angel’s promise to Joseph.

“She will give birth to a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21, HCSB)

It is the resurrection of hope.

According to His great mercy, He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into an inheritance that is imperishable, uncorrupted, and unfading, kept in heaven for you. (1 Peter 1:3-4, HCSB)

It is the irremovable seal on God’s vow of love to His children.

For all the promises of God find their Yes in him…And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. (2 Corinthians 1:20-22, ESV)

It is the definitive declaration that the Love we long for is not dead.

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39, ESV)

He is alive!

The Creator God wrapped His infinite being in flesh (John 1:14).

The Son of God endured temptation and humiliation, scorn and scourge (Hebrews 4:14-16, Matthew 27:15-44).

He satisfied the wrath of the holy and just Father, reconciling us to God (Romans 5:6-11).

And He walked out of the grave, forever defeating death and sin (1 Corinthians 15:55-57).

Dear friends, Jesus lived and died to buy your pardon, just like the old hymn says. He lives!

Hallelujah, the Gospel is true!

Save this lock screen to your phone as a daily reminder this week that we worship a living Savior.
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

    Thank you very much for great post to share us. This is the son of God who came to save this sinner ." All the way through the ages to me! So humbled and grateful this morning. And so impressed to pass on the Good News to those in the following generations, to continue to pass the baton to those behind me.

    It would have been more like a day and a bit @Hannah as he got beaten and crucified the first day then had risen early early morn Sunday. He would have gone to hell to conquer death and pay for our sin fully.

  3. Hannah says:

    I wonder what Jesus did during the three days before he rose to conquer death

    I keep praying to get it- to fully understand the resurrection and how it forgives and frees me. The scripture that says that God satisfied his wrath on the cross and Jesus bore my sins makes so much sense! When I sin, I am always waiting around for my punishment- for someone to get hurt, to hurt me, for something to be taken away. What a terrible way to think of my savior who loves me so dearly.

    I need to understand that Jesus bore it all- and if I congress my nasty sin I am able to move forward and walk guilt free! That is the blessing!

    Thank you Jesus for The Cross, your blood, your love and most of all thank you for forgiving us & restoring us .
    Happy Resurrection Day

    Reading through this I was amazed that the Angels had to remind of Jesus foretelling of his crucifixion and resurrection. They forgot the truth at a time when they should have clung to it. Interesting thought….
