Notes from our Preacher
At our congregation we often sing this song: "Up from the grave He arose, with a mighty triumpth over his foes" When they laid Jesus in the tomb, Pilate said, make it as sure as you can. After Jesus died, His enemies remembered that He said, "after three days I will rise again" Matt 27:63 So they sealed the tomb and placed soldiers there to guard it, but all to no avail. The Lord rose triumphantly, and an angel rolled the stone away so that everyone could see the empty tomb.
What does the resurrection of Christ mean to us? Is it just another Bible story? Romans 4:25 says that Christ "was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification." If we believe that Jesus died and shed His blood for us and we are ready to confess and repent of our sins, and be baptized into the body of Christ. He is willing to forgive us and, because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we can be justified, made as righteous as if we had never sinned, therefore we can have peace with God. .. Phil 4:7 And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ.
When you lay your head down on your pillow at night, the last thing you should do is thank God for his Son Jesus Christ, and the salvation that comes from being obedient to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What was it the Hebrew writher said? Heb 5:8-9 Though he were a son yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered. And being made perfect he became the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him
