Resurrection makes all the difference, folks. Without the resurrection, we’d be without hope. Life would be just life, no hope for broken hearted. No hope for sick and unhappy. And, certainly, no hope for sinners. Blessedly, God knew better. He knew we needed him even when we did not know we needed him. Hence, he sent Jesus to die for us. Jesus came to friend us, teach us, and save us. Because Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected, we have hope upon hope. Resurrection makes all the difference.
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, 4 and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. 5 And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see. (1 Peter 1:3-5, NLT)
Jesus is risen and nothing will ever be the same in the lives of believers. The resurrection of Jesus changed everything. This earthly life is full of death and dying, hardships and sorrow but the resurrection of Jesus brings us hope. This existence is not all there is.
Resurrection makes all the difference: Life and light win over death and darkness. God’s aggressive forgiveness, grace, wins sin hands down. Now there is freedom for everyone. God’s kingdom is here. The resurrection power is in charge. Hence we live now with great expectation. We are on the victor’s side. Nothing is impossible with God. Nothing. Hallelujah!
Thank you for raising Jesus from the death!
What a God you are!
How wonderful that resurrection makes all the difference.
Be praised forever and ever!
