BE RESURRECTED TO LIFE

Jesus is risen and sets on the throne of God today and forever to rule over all things. He had to take on the form of a man in the flesh in order to present a worthy supreme sacrifice once and for all, for the sins of the world past present and future. All the people in the world today have had their sins forgiven. But in order to be born again, they must do what Jesus commanded them to do:  Romans 10:9 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. It is through the resurrection of Christ that we attain being born again! 1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. This is how important the resurrection of Jesus is to our having eternal life. The Apostle Paul explains very clearly how important the resurrection is to Christians. 1 Corinthians 15:13-20 But 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. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up — if in fact the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.  But now Christ is risen from the dead!

Today is Easter Sunday! If you have never confessed your sins to Christ, today would be a most appropriate time to let Jesus know that you want Him to come into your life so that you may be saved. Don’t lose out by procrastination. Surrender to Him now! God bless you! In Jesus name, amen!

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU WILL BE RESURRECTED?

There is only twenty nine more days to Easter! This is a good time to ask why Easter is so important. Is it special to you or is it just another religious day to be observed? Easter has an important message for everyone, whether they attend church or not. Those who have been raised in a Christian home have known about Easter all their lives but many people do not know what Easter is all about and what it means to them. So why do we observe it? Is there a special message about Easter?

Easter is a time when we give special worship to Jesus Christ for something He did! We celebrate Easter because it gives us assurance that when we die we will go to heaven to be with Jesus. Jesus did something very special after He was crucified on the cross. He had been buried in the tomb for three days and then rose again to life and ascended to the throne of God. Our Savior lives!

John 10:15, 17-18, As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

Jesus had the power to lay His life down and take it back up again. He specifically came to the earth to take on the flesh of a man for this enormously important purpose.

The Apostle Paul explains why He had to rise from the grave! Jesus was the most valuable to the Father so He was the only one who could do what He did!  He conquered death and made it possible for mankind to be resurrected to eternal life. He became the first born!

Romans 8:29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

By His unselfish act of dying for us on the cross and then rising from the dead, Christ made it possible for us to live for eternity. His resurrection confirms our resurrection to be assured. That is how important it is!

1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 14, 20, For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.  And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. But now Christ is risen from the dead!

Read 1Corintians 15 and be filled with the Truth of God what Easter is all about! When Sunday, April 1, 2018, gets here, make it a point to attend a church service near you and celebrate this most important occasion in all our lives.

Dear heavenly Father, please hear my prayer for all who are lost without Jesus in their lives. I pray that you will convict the hearts of those who read this Easter message and bring them to understanding of the Truth of salvation through Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus, amen!
