“Christ the Lord Is Risen Today”
“… Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen …” Luke 24:5-6. No other event in human history can compare to this. The resurrection is not just a Bible story but thee revelation of all that God had sought to do since the foundation of the world, since He first alluded to Eve of a seed that would crush the serpent’s head (Genesis 3:15). All genealogies, people, and events recorded up to this point were written so we might understand the salvation history of a loving God who restored sinful mankind into a right relationship with Him. Finally—that which the prophets of old had longed to look into is now known. The serpent striking Jesus’ heel was the cross, but rather than a killing blow, it became the climax to the resolu-tion: the resurrection! There are no living to be found among the dead, yet we’ll search for anyone or anything to bring us immortality. We forget that no other name but His has been given us under heaven for salvation. He has done it! He has conquered death! And He has made a way for us to have eternal life with Him! That’s why the gospel is good news. He is not here, but has risen. So can you be! Do you share in His resurrection?
