"The Meaning of the Resurrection"
EASTER SUNDAY-A DAY OF TRIUMPH
We have come now to Christ’s day of glorious
triumph. "Up from the grave, He arose, with a
mighty triumph over His foes. He arose the Victor
of the dark domain, and He lives forever with His
saints to reign. He arose. He arose. Halalujah,
Christ arose!" Thus we proclaim when we sing the
great Gospel hymn. But, what does the resurrection
really mean to you, and to me? We need to take it
personally. Let me share with you some of the
things that the resurrection of Christ means to me.
I. First, IT MEANS THAT GOOD IS GREATER THAN EVIL.
It might appear sometimes that evil triumphs, and
I’m sure it appeared that way on the day of the
crucifiction, yet, a new day was dawning, a day
of glorious victory and triumph for the Lord Jesus
It appeared that Satan had won in the Garden of
Eden, when he enticed mankind to rebel against God,
but God immediately promised a Redeemer, in Genesis
It appeared that Satan had won in the days of Noah,
when the thoughts and intents of men’s hearts were
set on evil continually, yet, Noah found grace in
the eyes of the Lord, and the human race was
It appeared that Satan had won when Jesus was led
to the cross, and crucified, but Easter Sunday
changed all that!
II. Secondly, IT MEANS THAT GRACE IS GREATER THAN
ALL OUR SIN.
As the Scripture declares, "Where sin abounded,
grace did much more abound."
Christ’s perfect sacrifice of Himself, and His
pure, holy blood, cleanses us from all sin, if we
believe in Him.
III. Thirdly, IT MEANS THAT LOVE IS STRONGER THAN
The hatred of unbelievers for Christ is clearly re-
vealed at the cross, but God’s love is greater than
Jesus prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they know
not what they do."
There is a length, breath, depth, and height to the
love of God that cannot be fathomed.
IV. Fourthly, IT MEANS THAT LIFE IS STRONGER THAN
The life I have referece to is the Zoe, eternal
life, found only in Christ. He is the Light of
the World, and He overcame the darkness.
Death is a formidable foe, but Jesus has taken
its sting away. Praise God. If a man die, he
can and will live again, if he knows Jesus, for
whoever believes in Him shall never die.
This is a brief outline. Hope you were blessed
