But God Raised Him

But God Raised Him

But God Raised Him. These four words are the cornerstone of the Christian belief. Jesus was the Son of God. He came to earth and lived a pristine life. He was tormented and murdered for our crimes. But all of this would be worth nothing if not for that one fact: God raised Him

Wonderful. Merciful. Savior. Our precious Redeemer who took away our sins and gave us a chance to claim His perfect life.

What would have happened if God had not raised Jesus from the grave? I'll give you a moment to think about that bleak, awful sentence.

Terrified? So am I.

It would mean that there is no grace. That there is no resurrection for those who serve the living God. The promise of a crown for enduring would be gone. We wouldn't be able to look forward to a world with no pain, sorrow or tears. The hope of an earth made new would be ... dust.

We would be - hopeless.

But God Raised Him from the Grave

We can rejoice because our Savior lives. We can rejoice because He has overcome the world and the enemy has been defeated on our behalf. We can rejoice that He will come again and save us all into His kingdom. Because God raised Him (Jesus), we know that He will raise us too.

What a wonderful promise! I'm looking forward to that day, aren't you?

Let's Pray

Oh Jehovah, we are so thankful for those four words: "But God raised Him". They tell us we've been redeemed, bought back from the enemy and given a new life. We thank You for sending Your Son to die, but we're even more grateful that You raised Him from the dead. In Jesus' name. Amen.
