“But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.” (Acts 2:24 NASB)
Many struggle with believing that Christ was raised from the dead because such a notion is absurd to men. We all die, we don’t see people now rising from the dead so why should we believe that Christ did?
The bible teaches that the wages of sin is death. We die because we sin. Christ though, was no sinner, he was a man, but without sin. This death could not hold him and had to obey Him, to free Him. His crucifixion was a death he choose, not to pay for His own sins, but for the others whom He saves.
Christ is the only sinless man because He is God’s only Son in man’s flesh. His sacrifice is eternally priceless and with more than enough merrit to forgive us our sins completely and eternally, to save sinners to the uttermost, to those who call upon His name in repentant faith. He is also our hope for He has given magnificent promises of future glory awaiting His redeemed.
There is no other way but by Christ alone. Repent and believe upon Him. Come alive and leave the bonds of sin. Walk in the power of His righteousness and be bold in His uprightness.
