“He is not here, for He has risen.”

- Matthew 28:6

Jesus has risen. Risen indeed! “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins,” and there is no hope for you beyond the grave. Because the Lord knows the unbelief of human nature, He confirmed the great truth of the resurrection in every Gospel, by many witnesses, along with what is recorded in the Epistles. “Hence, also, He is able to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them”. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the crowning proof He won the battle over sin and death on our behalf. It is the guarantee that the Father accepted Him as the substitute for the payment of sin to the glory of God. Be encouraged!
