This coming Sunday we will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection is the most powerful single act in all of history. There have been many battles won and many inventions that have advanced mankind, however there has never been a victory that has had and will have so many far reaching eternal effects. The resurrection proved beyond any doubt that Jesus was God in the flesh. The resurrection was the ultimate victory of God over satan’s forces of evil. The resurrection opened the door for all of mankind to be able to conquer sin as we participate in Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection at baptism (Romans 6:4-7).
As disciples of Christ we walk around in victory no matter what we face, because we know that ultimately Christ has won the victory at His resurrection (2 Corinth 2:14). God has proven that He has all power over all evil. We can overcome any sin no matter how strong its hold may be in our lives because of Jesus’ victory at the resurrection . We can know that no matter how difficult our situation in life may be, Christ has the answer (John 16:33). We know that even when we face death, we have no reason to fear (1 Corith 15:55-56).
What an incredible gift God has given us as disciples so that we can be confident in this life as we face all of life’s difficulties and trials. What a powerful weapon God gives us as we face attacks from satan and his schemes. We don’t know what we will face this year. We don’t know how everything will work out in our lives. We also don’t know how to battle the spiritual forces of evil that wage against our souls. All of this is far beyond our realm and our abilities. However, we belong to a God that is more powerful than all we will face. We serve a God who has proven that he can defeat the most ferocious attacks of the evil one. Because of this we have a joy, a peace and a confidence that surpasses any logic that this world can comprehend. We are following a resurrected Lord.
Come celebrate this incredible victory with us this year by worshiping with us at one of our services.
