THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST from the dead is
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).

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
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).
