The Resurrection of a Dead Man

There are significant moments in life that alter our course. Most of those moments don't just alter the course of our life, but the lives of those we are IN RELATIONSHIP WITH. There was a significant moment in time for all of HUMANITY when Jesus fully man and fully God resurrected from the dead. This act of supernatural power defeating sin and death changed the course for humanity, however it has a greater effect on those who are in relationship with Him. For those who have believed and confessed with their mouth (Romans 10:9-10) that Jesus is the Son of God the act of resurrection not only changed the course of your life here on earth, but your eternity.

John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."

Romans 6:8-11 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Just as Christ died and was resurrected to life so we must die to our sin and live in the Spirit. The whole concept of death and resurrection does not make sense to a natural world. It is a gift of God to have the faith to believe that God became man, Fully God and Fully Man died on a cross, then resurrected to life, now lives forever in heaven, and if you believe that, confess that, and live that, you can also live on forever with Him.

I believe what is foolishness to man (1 Cor. 2:14) and I know that the Resurrection of Jesus has fully altered the course of my life, not just on this one day "Easter", but every single moment of every single day of my life. Thank You Lord, for what you did.

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
