Matthew 28:5-7– But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
Jesus paid the price for our sins through his death and rose from the dead for our justification. I want you to know that God placed a great value on you and your eternity and for that reason He sent Jesus Christ. God gave his best for you to have the best of life on earth and in heaven. I am always grateful for the sacrifice of Jesus because it helps me to understand how much God loves me and how much I should value myself. It has helped me to develop a high self esteem and confidence for a brighter future.
Life really begins when we accept the fullness of the blessing of the finished work of Christ. As a result of the finished work of Christ Jesus you are free from your sins and their consequence. You are now accepted before God and will never be rejected. You now have access to everything that Adam and Eve lost in the garden of Eden and much more.
In the eyes of God you died with Jesus and you rose with Him. You now have a new life. You have the God kind of life. You can enjoy the blessings of heaven while you are still on earth. Eternal life starts for you here. Whenever you remember the resurrection of Jesus always remember that Jesus lived, died and rose to give you all the credit. He did all for you and not for Himself. He did not need redemption; we did, He did not commit any sin; we did, He did not need salvation but we did. He did it all for us that we may be all that God intended for us be. So rejoice and be Glad. Happy Resurrection!
