IMPLICATIONS OF JESUS’ RESURRECTION
As we prepare ourselves for Holy Week to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, I offer below some implications of Jesus’ resurrection for us to ponder. So please take some time, find a quiet place and consider the following statements with scripture proofs. I hope it will cause you to have a deeper love, hope and courage to live out your Christians faith in our ever increasing secular culture. When Jesus rose from the dead it gave credibility and confidence in other areas of the Christian faith.
Here are some implications of Jesus’ resurrection:
It gives credibility to Jesus’ words; He is trustworthy for He promised and it came to pass.
Matthew 17:9; Luke 24:46; John 2:22
It proves that Jesus is truly God.
It validates His other works of power; the argument from the greater to the lesser. If He rose from the dead He certainly can forgive, heal and do other works of power.
It gives credibility to our gospel message.
John 11:25-26; Acts 1:22; Romans 10:9-10; 2 Timothy 2:8
It proves that Jesus has authority over sin and death.
1 Corinthians 15
If we are ‘In Christ’ we have a guarantee and a victory because of our union with Him.
John 14:1-6; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22; Ephesians 2:1-10; Romans 8:11; 1 Peter 1:3
If we are ‘In Christ’ we have the power to experience progressive victory over sin in our lives for He is in us.
If we are ‘In Christ’ we have the power to live ‘Alive to God for His Glory’.
Ephesians 1:18-23; Colossians 3:1-17
Below is our Holy Week Schedule with the theme ‘Jesus Brings Something New’ taken from His words in the upper room discourse in the Gospel of John. May the Lord use each event and each speaker to be a vehicle of God’s blessing and fill our hearts with hope and courage.
Warmly In Christ,
