What A Saviour
He rose again the third day
1 Corinthians 15:4
Most thinking people know that the Lord, Jesus Christ, died on the cross that very first Good Friday. Sadly, not so many people know that the Lord Jesus rose again to life on that very first Easter morning. Three days after paying the penalty for our sins on the cross, the sinless Jesus conquered death by rising from the grave and breaking the power of sin. It was this final sacrifice of blood that opened the only way for us to have a relationship with God now and a home with Him forever more.
“Christ died for our sins, . . . He was buried, and . . . He rose again the third day” (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He has promised that He is preparing a place for us (John 14:1-4), and He will someday return. One day we will be with our risen Saviour.
That is why every year at Eastertime—in fact, every day of the year—we have reason to celebrate the resurrection of our Saviour. “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth” (Ps 34:1).
1 Corinthians 15:3-8.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, by Your radiant and magnificent resurrection, You broke the bonds of death and rose from the grave as a conqueror. You reconciled Heaven and earth. Your resurrection has washed away my sins, Thank You, my Saviour. Amen.
