"One To Die For"

 When Jesus was raised up high on the cross, "Jacobs Ladder" was risen. When Jesus rose from the tomb, the bridge between God and sinful man was built! We know have access to our Holy God!
 We have to remember that Christianity begins where all the religions of the world end, at death, and it starts with resurrection Of our Savior Jesus Christ and the Resurrection of ourselves one day! No other religion has proof that the God that they follow is "Alive" and in control of our daily walk! No other religion can say they can have a personal, one on one relationship with their Lord and Savior. 
   "If the Resurrection is not historic fact, then the power of death remains unbroken, and with it the effect of sin; and the significance of Christ's Death remains uncertified, and accordingly believers are yet in their sins, precisely where they were before they heard of Jesus' name." C.H. Spurgeon
   I heard some one say one time, "There are many good religions in the world to live by but there is only one that i would want to DIE by".  
  C.H. Spurgeon once said " Upon a life I did not live, upon a death I did not die, I risk my whole eternity on the resurrection".  
 Question to think on: 
  Jesus died for you, will you die to self for Him? Would you give your physical life for Him?

The basic truth of the resurrection under-girds a number of other truths.
1.    It gives evidence that the Word of God is totally true and reliable. Jesus precisely when and in the way He had predicted (see Mt. 12:40; 16:21; 17:9, 23).
2.    The resurrection means that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, as He claimed to be, and that He has power over life and death.
3.    The resurrection proves that salvation is complete, that on the cross Christ conquered sin, death, and hell and rose victorious.
4.    The resurrection proves that the church has been established. Jesus had declared, "I will build My church; and the gates of Hades shall not overpower it" (Mt. 16:8)... His resurrection proved that death itself could not prevent Christ from establishing His church.
5.    The resurrection proves that judgment is coming. Jesus declared that the heavenly Father "has given all judgment to the Son" (Jn. 5:22), and since the Son is now risen and alive, His judgment is certain.
6.    The resurrection of Jesus Christ proves that heaven is waiting. Jesus promised, "In My house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you" (Jn. 14:2). Because Christ is alive by the resurrection, believers have the assurance that He is now preparing a heavenly dwelling for them.

John MacArthur


  1. Happy Resurrection Day everyone!

  2. Isn't it sad-- as humans, so many of us, toil our lives away to LIVE longer. Instead of 'dying' to those thoughts and desires and instead living abundantly in Christ,-- reaping the reward of the Resurrection for all eternity?

    If not for Grace, all would perish-


    1. Yes it is Pat, my wife always says, "If its not all Grace its not Grace at all!" Every breath I take is one breath closer to my Jesus!
