He is Risen!

April 8th, 2012

One of the key tenants of the Christian faith is that Jesus died on the cross for our sin. Another key aspect is that on the third day He rose to life.

Matthew 28:5-7 says, “5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

Jesus’ rising from the dead gives me hope. It gives me hope in knowing that Jesus has conquered death. It also gives me hope and assurance that when I die, I will rise to life too.

It is a great feeling to know that this life is not all there is. If we trust Christ for our salvation we know without doubt that we will spend eternity with Him.

To me that is the great hope of the Easter message. That Jesus died and rose again so we could be with Him forever.

God Bless,
