The resurrection of the Jesus holds just as much power today as it did over 2,000 years ago.
The first followers of Jesus lived in a scary age. The Roman occupiers crucified dissenters, and diseases like leprosy brought despair and doom to entire households. In 2021, the headlines are full of stories about fear, war, hatred, mistrust, financial disparity and doubt.
But when Jesus came, he brought HOPE. In his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ defeated death once and for all.
Now, Cancer—or COVID—has no victory. (1 Cor. 15:55) Ultimately, Jesus has destroyed the power of death. His resurrection is a taste of what is to come for all who are in Christ.
One day, He promises us that we will return—in a victory as real as His own resurrection. (Rom. 6:4)
