Christ Is Risen!!!

 

Christ is alive! His Resurrection proves that He has conquered sin, death, and the Devil! His Words – every one of them – are proven true through His resurrection!

After His Resurrection, it is documented that He was seen by:

Mary Magdalene – the other women at the tomb – Peter – two travelers on the road – the ten disciples and then Thomas – the crowd of 500 – James, His brother – all who watched Him ascend to Heaven – Stephen as he was being stoned – Paul on the Damascus Road.

(Mark 16:9-11, John 20:10-18; Matthew 28:8-10; Luke 24:34, 1 Corinthians 15:5, John 20-21; Matthew 16:12-13, Luke 24:13-35; Matthew 28:16-20, Luke 24:36-49, Mark 16:14, John 20:19-21:14; 1 Corinthians 15:6; 1 Corinthians 15:7; Luke 24:44-40, Acts 1:3-8; Acts 7:55-59; Acts 9:1-17)

Today we also see the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ revealed:

–through His Spirit opening the eyes of our hearts, the eyes of our spirits to know Him (John 16:12-15).

–through creation, as Martin Luther said, “Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime” (Psalm 19:1-4), Romans 1:20).

–in the reality of the changed lives – our own and people around us (Romans 12:2, 2 Corinthians 3:18, 5:17, Galatians 5:22-23).

The risen, reigning Lord Jesus Christ IS alive! He is alive in our hearts by faith! And He is coming again… possibly sooner than we think!

What difference does the crucified yet resurrected, living and omnipotent Jesus Christ make in your life every day? If you knew that tomorrow would be the day of His return to earth, what would you do today?
