The Glory of Easter

The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ are the greatest events in the history of the world. So much good was provided for mankind in these events.

First, the death and resurrection of Jesus reveals that He is exactly who He said He was. On different occasions, the Lord Jesus declared He was God. Mark 2:1-11, John 8:54-58, and John 10:27-33 are representative passages where Jesus proclaimed His deity. In the resurrection, Jesus gave proof positive that He is indeed God. Paul wrote in Romans 1:4, Jesus was declared the Son of God (this phrase denotes deity) with power by the resurrection from the dead.

Second, the crucifixion of Jesus reveals that God can take what is horrible and bring from it indescribable good. It was appalling what evil people did to Jesus. They put Him through six unjust trials–three Jewish, three Roman. They mocked Him, spit on Him, beat Him unmercifully, and hung Him on a cross and ridiculed Him as He was dying. It was horrible what Jesus endured. Yet, in that most darkened time, God, unbeknownst to man, was accomplishing the greatest good for mankind. The way of salvation was being paved. What the Lord did in His dying reveals that the promise of Romans 8:28 is true. For those who love Him, the Lord will take all things and cause them to work for good.

Finally, the crucifixion and resurrection gives every follower the guarantee of these benefits–forgiveness of all our sins, rescue from judgement and hell, and a loving Savior Who will never leave us. Instead, He will guide, protect, comfort, and empower us to live and serve Him. We will have victory over death. Jesus said, “Whoever lives and believes in Me will never die," John 11:26. Heaven will be our eternal home.

The death and resurrection of Jesus offer the greatest gift ever offered to the human family. Hopefully, you have received this gift by accepting Jesus as your Savior. Have a blessed Easter.
