He Arose

a door
proof that He has conquered death and has thrown 
open the door of everlasting life.  The third day 
after, on resurrection morning, an angel declared 
the triumphant news to His followers: "I know that 
ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here:
for He has risen, as He said" (Matthew 28:5-6).
Because of Christ's death on the cross, we can know
the joy of God's forgiveness of our sins. And 
through His resurrection we can have the assurance 
of everlasting life. The living Savior promises: 
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that 
believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he 
live" (John 11:25).

After the dark hours on the cross when Christ was 
judged by God for our sins, His body was placed in 
a new tomb. His enemies set up a guard and sealed 
the tomb with a Roman seal so that His body would 
not be stolen.  Jesus Christ arose from the dead!
The Savior "who knew no sin," willingly took the 
punishment for our sins "that we might be made the 
righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21). The 
Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world had
fulfilled the work of God for our redemption 
(John 1:29) and His sacrifice was accepted by His 
Heavenly Father.

Because of Christ's resurrection you can receive 
God's salvation: If you confess with your mouth 
that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that 
God raised him from the dead, you will be saved 
(Romans 10:9).  You can be assured that Jesus 
Christ is living for you. 

The living Savior is able also to save to the 
uttermost those who draw near to God through Him 
(Hebrews 7:25). And because Jesus Christ lives in 
Heaven today, those who trust Him for salvation 
will one day be with Him, as He promised, "I go to 
prepare a place for you .... that where I am, there
ye may be also" (John 14: 2-3).
