And the angel answered and said to the women, Fear not: I know you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, as He said.
Jesus died on the cross for our sins and when He rose again, He made a way for us to have eternal life with God our Father. The law was given to show us that there is not way for us to live by the law, no matter how hard we try, we will ultimately fail. The only way to be saved is through a relationship with Jesus Christ. It has never been, nor ever will be about religion or belonging to the “right church or denomination”. We are saved by the blood of Jesus Christ which was shed for us.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son… Jesus came to earth in the form of a man so that He could make a way for us to be saved from our sins, past, present, and future. He has been through everything that we will ever experience, He knows what it is to be betrayed, He knows what it is to feel abandoned, He knows and understands our deepest hurts and despair, and He went through it all to make a way for us to live eternally with God our Father.
There will be things that you go through that you don’t understand; there will be times where it seems so dark that there is no hope; but be assured, Jesus is there, God is faithful, He will always make a way of escape, He will always be there with you. Where will I go from your Spirit? If I ascend into heaven, you are there: if I make my bed in hell, behold you are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there will your hand lead me, and your right hand will hold me. If I say, surely the darkness will cover me; even the night will be light about me – Psalm 139
Remember we serve a risen Savior, and He rose, so that we might live eternally with Him!
