Christ's Resurrection Can Help Me?

The resurrection of Jesus is by far the most significant historical event ever to occur, outside of creation itself. But God doesn't want this great act of miracle-power to be lost in the history books or offered a mere token remembrance on Easter Sunday.


The resurrection of Jesus Christ can have a profound impact on your life today, tomorrow, and forever.


While the death of Jesus on the Cross provided the basis for the forgiveness of our sins, the resurrection of Jesus from the dead paves the way for our future with God. It reverses that terrible trend of death that began with Adam and Eve -- and it brings true life to the spirit of mankind, so that once again we can know God as we were intended to know Him.


The resurrection can give you hope and purpose in life, knowing that death is not the end.


The resurrection of Jesus offers us something that no self-help book or counseling can; it offers us assurance that God's power can give us an eternal future. 


Remember, God created you so that you could know and love Him as Father, Friend, and Lord. As long as your spirit is dead toward Him, resisting His truth and ignoring His Word, you can never fulfill that purpose -- no matter how many good things you do.  But through the sacrifice Jesus made - His death, your sins can be erased.  And through His resurrection power, you can live a new life today, and have eternal life in Heaven.


A few Bible passages that speak to this issue:

"...just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life." - Romans 6:4


"[God] has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we
have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was
given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but
it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ
Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to
light through the gospel." - 2 Timothy 1:9-10


"I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order
that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of
his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms..." - Ephesians 1:18-20
