Resurrection: A Fact

The resurrection of Christ and the fact of the empty tomb are not a part of this world’s complex and continuing mythologies. This is not a Santa Claus tale; it is history, and it is a reality! The true church of Jesus Christ is necessarily founded upon the belief and the truth that there was a real death, a real tomb, and a real stone. But thank God, there was a sovereign Father in heaven, an angel sent to roll the stone away, and a resurrected living Savior, who was able to proclaim to His disciples, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth!” Brethren, He died for us, but ever since the hour of the resurrection, He has been the mighty Jesus, the mighty Christ, the mighty Lord! Our business is to thank God with tearful reverence for the Cross, but to go on to a right understanding of what the resurrection meant both to God and to men. We understand and acknowledge that the Resurrection has placed a glorious crown upon all of Christ’s sufferings!

Verse

Be established in the present . . . for we have not cunningly devised fables. 2 Peter 1:12, 16

Thought

Brethren, He died for us, but ever since the hour of the resurrection, He has been the mighty Jesus, the mighty Christ, the mighty Lord!

Prayer

Lord, when You defeated death and conquered sin; You displayed Your ultimate authority. I praise You because I love You, and I praise You because I could do nothing else.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
