Greetings Family and Friends,
For Thou wilt not leave My soul in hell;
neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One
to see corruption.
God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children,
in that He hath raised up Jesus again;
as it is also written in the second Psalm,
Thou art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee.
And as concerning that He raised Him up from the dead,
now no more to return to corruption,
He said on this wise,
I will give You the sure mercies of David.
Wherefore he saith also in another psalm,
Thou shalt not suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption.
Jesus isn’t on the cross any more!
He was taken from the cross to the tomb.
After three days He arose from the dead,
and He is alive forevermore!
Jesus’ birth, death, burial, descent into hell, and subsequent resurrection not
only affects the whole world, past, present and future, but it is glorious in scope
and affects me personally. Let me tell you about it. First of all these blessed events
have changed the course of my whole life currently and eternally.
I was young, I went to church but I wasn’t really sure where I would
spend eternity and it frightened me. I was afraid to die. I hoped I would go to
heaven but hoping my good deeds would be good enough really gave me no
Well, that’s not much to offer the Lord. “Lord, I go to church on Sundays and I
try to be good,” but we both knew I failed miserably in that area. So what was the
answer? The question should be, “WHO is the answer?” JESUS is the answer.
His mission was simple. He came to earth to die and become the Sacrifice for the
sins of the whole world, and that included me!
Sure, I knew that Jesus was crucified and rose from the dead, but I didn’t know
that His death was not only for all mankind but for me personally. This is true
for you also.
I went to a Crusade – a Christian outreach in the Denver, City Auditorium
with my friends. It was a church service so different from the church I went to.
I can’t tell you everything the preacher said, but I can tell you my heart was touched
as I tried to wipe away the tears that were streaming down my face. I was
I was embarrassed that I was crying in public not really understanding that the
Lord had taken a hold of my heart.
When the preacher gave the altar call for those who wanted to be saved and
invite Christ into their hearts I found myself getting up and heading down the
many, many steps from the balcony where we were seated. It was so real, just as if
Jesus had taken me by the hand and we descended the steps together. As I knelt to
pray at the place that had been prepared for us behind the stage, a lady prayed
with me. As I asked the Lord to forgive me of my sins and to come into my
heart, Jesus did just that. It was then I realized I found the One I had been
searching for all my life.
Jesus loves me and He loves you too. Maybe you are at a place in your life where
you realize you need Jesus to forgive you and come into your heart and be your
own personal Savior. A simple prayer will do when it’s from your heart.
And this is the very significance and goal of Christ’s resurrection- that we also
might experience what He experienced – being raised up “together with Him” so
that we too might start walking “in newness of life”!
Therefore we are buried with Him…
that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the Glory of the Father
even so we also should walk in
Newness of Life…
Because Jesus lives we can face all our tomorrows.
Jesus is Alive, never more to die!
The tomb where He was laid is empty!
Thank you for stopping by.
Please pray for America the Beautiful.
