He Is Risen!

The good news of the gospel is that Jesus Christ our Lord died, was buried and rose on the third day to sit at the right hand of the Father. As Christians, our hope is in Him through whom we have salvation by His sacrifice on the cross for our sins.

“But the angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.’”

(Matthew 28:5-6)

How great is our God to have given His Son so that we could have eternal life. No other event throughout all ages compares with what He purposed from the beginning, to redeem us from death so that we would have redemption.

As Christ rose from His grave, He defeated Death and Hades, after which there were no more enemies to conquer. His majesty is sure, the breadth of His domain is without end and His kingship over all things will last forever.

O wonderful is He; Jesus Christ our Lord, for His name is holy and pure. Through Him, we have eternal life, and through Him, we have salvation, which God has given to us freely because we believe He is the Son of God.

Blessed are those who believe Jesus, as we will one day rise, for He is risen!
