We Christians have hope and can find eternal life from Jesus resurrection.
We must believe Jesus is risen at the first day of the week.
We need to be joyful and not be afraid as Jesus is risen!
The "cross" was the payment and the "resurrection" was the receipt. Because Jesus prove it that we will go to heaven if we have faith.
Luke 24:36-38 36While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."
37They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?
Jesus stayed with His disciples for 40 days after He is risen.
1 Corinthians 15:4-6 4that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. 6After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.
If you go to court you will need 3 witnesses to prove you're not guilty but these witnesses are more than 3 to prove Jesus has risen.
John 20:24-29 24Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord!"
But he said to them, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it."
26A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!" 27Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe."
28Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!"
29Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
Even in our trials and pains God is faithful He will never leave us. So stop doubting.
When someone is dying the last word is very important. And Jesus last words after His resurrection are very important.
John 11:25 I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.
Jesus claimed that He is the resurrection and the life. And He proved it when He rose from the dead after 3 days when He died on the cross. In Him we can also find Life - Eternal life by believing God with all our hearts. Let's celebrate Jesus! Happy Easter!
