Two Events That Changed The World (Part 2)

Three days have passed. Because of the Sabbath day the women had had to wait to put burial spices on Jesus' body. Now they make their way to the tomb, but when they arrive, a surprise awaits. The tombstone is rolled back and men in white are around the area. They ask them what they're doing and then ask why they're looking for Jesus, reminding them that He had said that He would rise again. The women turn and run back to inform the disciples. Unbelieving, Peter and John run to the tomb to investigate. No body. Later Jesus appears to them, proving that He has beaten death and that His word is true. He is risen!

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is crucial to our faith. We know that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and we know that He was raised to life on the third day, but do you know why this event is so important?

If Jesus had not been raised from the dead, He would not have overcome death. In that case we would still be in the position of facing death because of our sins with no alternative. Death would have won and still had power.

But. . .

We know that Christ conquered death and now, because of that, it is powerless over anyone who is in Christ. Of course we all still die physically(unless we're living when Jesus returns), but a spiritual death, being subject to God's wrath and separation from Him, no longer has any hold on us. We don't need to be afraid of physical death because that ends and we will then live with God, and we also don't need to fear spiritual death because, if we have accepted Christ into our hearts to be our Savior and Lord, he has overcome that.

Jesus had to die and shed his blood in order that we might be forgiven. However, if He hadn't risen from the grave, He wouldn't have won the victory over death. Because of these two events all people have had the opportunity to be saved from eternity in hell. If Jesus' death and resurrection hadn't occurred, everyone would be lost.

Praise the Lord that He gave up His life for us, the very ones that had turned our backs on Him!

"When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: 'Death has been swallowed up in victory.'

'Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting'

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."---1 Corinthians 15:54-57, NIV


  1. I love this one to! you are so right. i never really realized before exactly why Jesus had to rise from the dead. i knew why He had to die, but rising from the dead is a whole different story! Thanks so much!
