Creation! Out of the dust of the earth! The breath of God! Mankind enters the world in fellowship with this creation. The Fall of Man! Sin, the plague, rooted in the souls of man, every curse to torment humanity. The Promise! The Hope that the curse would be shattered. Jesus! Born in a stable, laid in a manger, walked the earth as a perfect man . . . a perfect sacrifice. The Cross! The emblem of suffering and shame. The instrument, the vehicle the Father used to destroy sin’s curse. The obedience of the Son, even death upon the tree. Freedom! Sin’s ugly blight destroyed! The open grave, the risen Lord, Alive! O death where is your victory? Destroyed, its power vanquished. The curse brought into the world by the first Adam, annihilated by the second Adam. Blessing be to our risen Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, who brought us the victory.
We celebrate Resurrection Sunday today. The wonderful day when we purposely acknowledge the resurrection of our Lord and Savior. Because of His work on the cross and this victory over death, hell, and the grave, we rest in the blessed hope of our victory over the grave and the assurance of an eternity of fellowship with the Holy Trinity. PRAISE GOD!
Worship the resurrected Lord with us. Enjoy the day church, God bless you!
