Holy Week The Resurrection
Luke 24:1-8 Jesus is Life
The one by whom the world was created is the one who took on flesh and made his dwelling among men. He did this to die so that we may have life. This is the greatest story of love that has ever been and ever will be. The giver of life has taken death for you. On Sunday the women went to the tomb expecting to see the body of Jesus, yet to their surprise he was not there.
This perplexed them and perplexes most people in our world today. How can a man die and raise from the dead? Jesus was not just a man, he was Immanuel, God with us. The angels in all their splendor say “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here but has risen.” In that moment it all clicked. Jesus must pass through death to bring life. It was his life that now brings life to all men. The eternal life is in Christ Jesus because he now satisfied the very wrath of God. The cross was enough for salvation. Now he calls people to trust in God and also in Him that he is the way, the truth, and the life. It is only through Him do we enter the presence of God. It is the eternal glory in the presence of God in which we long for. He is Risen! He is Risen! He is Risen! It is not just a saying but a declaration that our God has not forgotten His creation and we too will be raised with him. The gospel brings life to your dark and weary soul and in the midst of sadness or despair we are assured of God’s love and His plan to bring you into His presence. Will you place your faith in the King? He is worthy of praise? He
is worthy of glory and may we live our lives for Him today and every day. He is Alive and may he bring life to you. Drink from the living water, eat of the bread of life. Open the door because he is knocking, and he wants you to come and be with him forever. Jesus is Life. Believe so that you may have life.
