Easter, Part 2a – The Resurrection

Can any of us fully fathom the significance of Jesus’ resurrection?  He kept His promise that He would be raised from the dead.  He kept the most “impossible” of promises.  This means that all His other promises are completely trustworthy.  All of them.

He has gone ahead to prepare a forever home for us (John 14:1-3).

He sits at the right hand of God, and intercedes on our behalf (John 16:19).

He has fulfilled the Law (Matthew 5: 17-20).

His yoke is easy, and His burden light, when we cooperate with Him in our lives (Matt. 11:29).

He is the source of Living Water, as He told the woman at the well.  We need never thirst for Him again (John 4:13-14).

He gives us a way to be free of our old, sin-filled self:  to deny ourselves, take up our cross, and follow Him to LIFE (Matt. 16:24-26).  He came that we may have ABUNDANT life, to offset the Thief’s work of killing, stealing, and destroying (John 10:10).

He is coming again (Matt. 25:31).

He will never leave us (Matt. 28:20).

He tells us we need not fear man (Luke 12:4).
