My Redeemer Lives!
“He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay.” Mark 16:6
He has risen! This Easter, Christians worldwide celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. For Christians, the resurrection is the cornerstone of our faith. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, we are saved from our sins and given eternal life. Easter is a time to celebrate our hope in Jesus’ victory over death and remember that he is coming back again. Jesus showed us the ultimate power of resurrection and victory over death.
When Jesus was crucified, His disciples were devastated. They had followed Him for three years, and now they watched Him die a humiliating death on Good Friday. The unbelievers were laughing at them and mocking them. They had lost their hope, leader, and friend. Little do they remember what Jesus said about his resurrection, but thanks be to God who promised and never failed. That’s why on the third day, something miraculous happened through the power of God in Him. Jesus rose from the dead! His disciples were overjoyed and soon began telling everyone about what had happened.
Job 19:25 says, “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth last.”
Is there anyone laughing at you about your situation? Don’t worry, God will come to your rescue and take you out of miry clay as He did for Jesus, whom He raised from the dead. You may feel like you are all alone in this world, but don’t forget that God is with you. He has a plan for your life, and He will never leave you nor forsake you. So hold onto the hope that God gives you, and don’t give up. Know that He loves you and wants the best for you. Remember that God is still in control when things seem at their worst. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Jesus is the one who provides us with hope, peace, and love. He is our salvation and forgives our sins. We can find comfort in knowing that Jesus has conquered death and will return one day. So therefore, as we reflect on the Easter story, be reminded of the gift of hope that Jesus provides. He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. This is good news for us because we have been forgiven and can have peace and love in our lives. Jesus offers us salvation, and everything He has promised us is yes, and Amen. 1 Corinthians 15:22 says, “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.”
1. Oh Lord, let the power of resurrection begin with me today in Jesus’ name.
2. Whatever you are going through that makes someone mock you, remember that this shall pass. I pray, may the sun of greatness rise upon you and turn your tears into joy in Jesus’ name. Amen.
