Fresh off the sobering week contemplating the last week of Christ’s life, we turn the corner to celebrate the fact that Jesus is alive! Death could not hold the Son of God. The grave held no sway over the power of the Holy Spirit. His resurrection gives hope and assurance to every believer. This world, with all of its sickness, disease, violence, and evil, will one day kill our bodies.
But by the power of our Lord Jesus, it can’t keep us in the grave either. The resurrection power of Christ lives in each one of us. His death demonstrated the dreadful fate of every man. His resurrection guaranteed eternal life to all who will surrender their lives to Him. Jesus is alive, and because He is, we too can live in eternity with our Creator.
