Magnitude of the Ressurection

Magnitude of the Resurrection
C. Hayden 3-26-18
This Sunday we celebrate and remember the most pinnacle event regarding the faith of every believer in Christ,
Resurrection Day, or as we have come to know so well, Easter Sunday! The time of our Lord’s great triumph over
hell and death. Of course we can’t separate Resurrection Day from Good Friday as we could never experience our
Resurrection until Jesus first
experiences the cross and His death thereof.
Through the cross and resurrection
of our Lord we are given opportunity to
receive great rewards if we would
just repent of our sin and give our hearts to
King Jesus in our decision to live for
Him. Revelation 22:11-13 says this, “He who
is unjust, let him be unjust still; he
who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is
righteous, let him be righteous still;
he who is holy, let him be holy still. And
behold, I am coming quickly, and
is with Me, to give to everyone
according to his work. I am the
Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and
the End, the First and the Last.” Well let’s list some of those rewards that come from Christ’s death and
resurrection for those who believe.
Eternal life (Live forever!),
Fellowship with God and all the saints and angels,
No more death or sorrow,
An eternity of love, joy and peace,
Total healing, no more sickness,
No more poverty (We are joint-heirs w/Christ),
Heaven as our home,
We will be like Christ (No fallen or sinful nature),
No more darkness or loneliness or depression,
No more bills and no more taxes (That is good news)
We will be forever living in God’s glory (Forever Light)
We will always be with Christ forever in His presence.
This is but a few of the benefits (and does not even go into the benefits we can enjoy now) of being a follower of
the Lord Jesus Christ. He paid the price of the cross and was resurrected by the same power given to us through
the Holy Spirit so that all who dare to believe in His name will receive the benefit of being an adopted son or
daughter of God. No matter what you may be going through in this life, no matter what troubles you have and are
experiencing now, and no matter what trials may be on the horizon, the cross and subsequent resurrection of our
Lord has the FINAL WORD!! Hallelujah!! Now that is worth remembering and celebrating!!! Come worship with us
this Easter Sunday—Resurrection Day. All are welcome.
Be blessed even more and have a wonderful week!!
