He Is Raised, and We With Him!
Jesus’ RESURRECTION, not just His death, frees us from our sins, for all who have faith, “put their full weight” on Him. Can you grasp what this means? Yes, forgiveness from the past by His death! But ALSO our FUTURE opportunity to LIVE will NOT be hindered by the sins of the past! He is RAISED - and so are those who BELIEVE on Him full throatedly, whole heartedly!
We are not accused of our past sins - because He died for those sins.
We are not hindered from truly LIVING - because He is RAISED!
We are raised to walk in NEWNESS OF LIFE LIFE LIFE!
He died for us.
HE IS RAISED, and we WITH HIM!
And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins. Furthermore, those who have fallen asleep in Christ have also perished. For if only in this life we have hope in Christ, we should be pitied more than anyone.
But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also came through a man. For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. (1Cor 15:17-22)
