What A Saviour
Then He said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets
and the Psalms concerning Me.”
What was the power and influence that changed the cross from an instrument of bloody torture into the most glorious and beloved of all symbols? The Romans crucified thousands of people before and after Calvary. If Jesus Christ had not risen from the dead, no right-minded person would have glorified anything so hideous and repulsive as a cross stained with the blood of the Lord. By the miracle of His rising from the grave, Jesus placed the seal of assurance upon the forgiveness of our sins.
A dead Christ could not have been our Saviour. An unopened grave would never have opened heaven. By bursting the chains of the tomb, the Lord Jesus proved Himself to all ages as the conqueror of sin. The sacrifice on Calvary had fulfilled its purpose; the ransom price paid for your sins and mine had been accepted by God. Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
MY Lord and my God, Each time I see the empty cross and tomb, let me be reminded of Your great and wonderful gift of the Lord Jesus; Let me remember His suffering and His victory. Amen.
