This past Easter Sunday, many churches celebrated very differently this year the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, many churches have closed and have decided to stream their services via social media outlets. For the past few weeks, pastors and faith leaders all over the nation have been very essential to imparting faith in the lives of many Americans through their social media platforms. They have continued to pray and preach the gospel despite the fact that they haven’t been able to meet in person with their congregations.
Yesterday, in the midst of all the negative news that there has been, the best news of all is that Jesus has risen! If he hasn’t been raised from the dead, then we might as well lose all hope right now. But we thank God that over 2000 years ago, he sent his son Jesus to die in the cross for all of our sins! Let this be a permanent reminder that he reigns over all! He reigns over coronavirus, and every other sickness and disease that is contaminating the world right now.
The best news is that his death on the cross was irrevocable and it is our guaranteed victory!! Because Jesus overcame, so will we! He resurrected from the dead, therefore, we will also resurrect from dead areas in our life! In our intimacy with God, in our devotional life, and in every other personal area in our life! He is the Almighty God.
And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!1 Corinthians 15:17
His death is not fake! When I gave my life to Jesus, I was convinced that He rose from the dead! I know that only Jesus can give me that hope! He resurrected, and he is coming back soon. Therefore, this isn’t in vain. This isn’t just something I do just so that I can feel better. His tomb is literally empty! If you go to Buddha’s grave, Buddha will be right there. If you go to Muhammad’s grave, Muhammad will be right there. You can go to the grave of every other deep and profound leader, and you will find them laying there!
If Jesus rose from the dead, that means that he is real! And if he is real, that means that his word is real! If his word is real, then his promises are faithful! Believe in His promises! He is faithful! He will make this end soon!
