Death Undone in Christ Alone

“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.

The Offense of God’s Commands

What was God’s intention in giving the law? What is Christ’s intention in calling all to repentance? Both are intended to display the Godhead’s eternal characteristics and qualities in nature. We ought to see primarily God’s holiness displayed in these two realities, given by God’s graciousness to all creation.

The problem with us sinners is that in our fallen condition we are offended by these displays. Until our hearts are changed, we cannot please God, nor would we truly want to because by nature we hate him…hence our sending Him to the cross. To those who hate their sin, there is One who is able to save, who is worthy to take your place for your cosmic treason, and has done so already at the cross! Jesus Christ alone is able to save sinners, He is risen for our justification. Repent and believe in Him and your salvation will be secure!
