He is Risen!

Matthew 28:6 KJV “He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”

The death and resurrection of our Savior is the very core of our Christian faith. As believers, the resurrection of Jesus gives us hope for the life to come. Not only that, it also demonstrates and assures us of the power that lives inside us. On the morning of Jesus’ resurrection, the angel uttered these words to Mary Magdalene and the “other” Mary who was with her: He is not here, for he has risen. No, of course, the Lord Jesus Christ is not on the cross. He is also not in the grave. He was raised from the dead and he is now in heaven, sitting on the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1). He is set on the right hand of the throne of Majesty in the heavens, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come (Hebrews 8:1, Ephesians 1:20-21). This is a hope-filled statement. And if Christ be not raised, our faith is vain (1 Corinthians 15:17). Our hope is not in the crumbling world system, but rather in the One who defeated death for us and will return to take us home for eternity! Hallelujah! Jesus Christ is alive forevermore (Revelation 1:18). But is He alive in you? Is Christ’s light shining through you and visible around you so much that darkness cannot stand your presence? Is Christ’s life being lived through you so that men can see and experience His good works through you (Matthew 5:16)? Can He manifest His power through you in tangible ways? Is Christ’s love being expressed through you so you can love the unlovable? Jesus Christ is alive. But can you show with proof that He is alive in you? That is the critical question you and I need to answer as we celebrate His resurrection!
