He Arose, He Arose, Hallelujah Christ Arose!

That’s the crux of our faith. If Jesus didn’t rise from the dead we have no hope. Some people tried to prove that it just wasn’t so. No one succeeded, ask Lee Strobel, who in trying to find proof that the resurrection was a scam, instead found a personal relationship with a living God. This is a Happy Day for believers. After a week of solemnly reflecting on what Jesus endured for us — was crucified and died — today we celebrate because the grave could not hold Him.

From a human standpoint it’s unbelievable. “But God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom. 5:8) I know love. I have children and I love them with a fierce unconditional unstoppable love. Would I ask one of them to die for you? No. Would I ask them to die for me? Never. Yet God the Father asked his son to die for us. The perfect sacrifice, to put an end to all sacrificing. How could it be??? God the Father and God the Son knew what was coming.

Jesus willingly endured pain, suffering, and death on Friday…because He knew what was coming on Sunday. The resurrection! What kind of love is that? Perfect love.
