1 Corinthians 15:4 – “that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures”. (Source)
This is such a glorious day for us as believers in Christ. Death has been overcame! Our Lord and Savior defeated death once and for all so all of us, past, present, and future, may inherit eternal life who believe in Christ that He died and rose for our sins. He is the key to us going to the Father. This is such an exciting day.
A couple of days ago, I challenged each of you to think about what Jesus’ decision in the Garden of Gethsemane meant to you. For me, it meant that no matter what, I truly feel loved because to give your ONLY begotten child up for a sacrifice is something that pretty much all of us cannot even fathom doing. God loves us THAT much. We exist for Him. We now have the way to reaching eternal life. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” – John 14:6 (Source).
When we enter the Kingdom of God, we will all have perfect forms. There will only be one person with imperfections… That one is Christ. We will see the nail holes in His hands and feet that will remind us of how we were able to get to Heaven. The most difficult sacrifice anyone can imagine.
I recall as a freshly born again Christian, I KNEW about Christ’s sacrifice. However, I didn’t fully understand it. Really reading about it and digging into how it was as an adult, it is so powerful. It is such a humbling experience for me. To know leading up to being crucified, Jesus experienced every painful emotion we have, or ever will, experience. For Him to do this with such grace and humility is mind blowing. I love Christ for His sacrifice for us, I love God for giving us a living sacrifice so that we may inherit eternal life. I fully and whole heartedly believe in Christ as my Lord and savior. For He is the King of all Kings.
Until next time my brothers and sisters in Christ, God Bless!
