Happy Easter everyone! He is Alive!
Write this down, "The Gospel makes it possible." Victory in Jesus is made possible only by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The word "Gospel" means good news and in a world filled with darkness and despair, we could all use some good news. The best news that we can share with you today is this, "Jesus died for your sins so that you can have a relationship with God forever and ever."
The Gospel is of first importance so don't get confused about the purpose of Jesus's life here on earth. His primary purpose was to die for our sins, and then be resurrected so sit at the right hand of God the Father forever and ever!
Victory in this life on earth
We don't have to wait to get to heaven before we can experience "victory in Jesus", we can experience it today! Check out Galatians chapter 2, verse 20 - "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." Today, you can experience the power, peace, and freedom that comes with surrendering your life to Jesus Christ.
Victory in the life to come
As wonderful as it is having victory HERE through Christ living inside of you, the ultimate victory is HEREAFTER, when we experience the promised resurrection throughout all the endless ages of eternity.
Check out 1 Corinthians, chapter 15, verses 50 -57 to discover more about the hope and promises that we have through Jesus Christ. And don't forget about Isaiah, chapter 25, verse 8, "Death is swallowed up in victory."
The resurrection VICTORY tells us that Jesus has defeated death, hell, and the grave . . . so that we might have victory in this life and the life to come, that is the good news of Easter!
