The Reason for the Resurrection

Let’s remember why today is Easter. It is a day of celebration and of rejoicing. Today, our Savior is risen so that we may not die but have an everlasting life in unity with God. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit has come to guide our steps every step of the way. We were once separated from the presence of God because we were once slaves of sin, but Jesus has made it possible for us to be free from our sins and have a relationship with the One who created us.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only and unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in him may have eternal life, instead of being utterly destroyed.
‭‭John ‭3:16‬ ‭CJB‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

For what one earns from sin is death; but eternal life is what one receives as a free gift from God, in union with the Messiah Jesus, our Lord.
‭‭Romans ‭6:23‬ ‭CJB‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

“And if the Spirit of the One who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, then the One who raised the Messiah Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you.”
‭‭Romans ‭8:11‬ ‭CJB‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

It is his doing that you are united with the Messiah Jesus. He has become wisdom for us from God, and righteousness and holiness and redemption as well! Therefore, as the scripture says “Let anyone who wants to boast, boast about Adonai.”
‭‭1 Corinthians 1:30-31‬ ‭CJB‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Let us worship Him for all he has done, and for what He will do!
