Verse of the Day
…they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen!” [Luke 24:5-6 – NKJV]
Jesus’ Resurrection on Easter Sunday is the linchpin of our faith. It gives us hope and assurance of a life everlasting as we worship and sing praises to the King of kings and Lord of lords! But why is the Resurrection so important? The Apostle Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 15:13-14 that “if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.” Jesus said it best in John 11:25-26: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.”
So give thanks this Easter to Jesus for His sacrifice on the Cross and His redemptive blood that forgives us of our sins. And make sure to say a special prayer of thanks for His Resurrection that gives us the assurance of life everlasting in Him!
He is risen! He is risen indeed!
