Read: John 20:1-8
“…our Saviour Jesus Christ…hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:” (2 Timothy 1:10 KJV)
What is the foundation of our Christian faith? An empty tomb! Yes, the cornerstone of the gospel is that grave which held no corpse on that first resurrection morning. To express the truth more accurately, Christianity lives on the saving grace of the resurrected Jesus.
He did indeed arise, breaking the bonds of death and leaving empty the garden sepulcher. And that is the good news which ever since has been proclaimed by followers of Jesus Christ.
The news is that death has been defeated and the door to eternal life has been opened by His nailed-pierced hands (1Cor. 15:54-57).
The next time you drive past a cemetery or attend a funeral service, remember the good news of the resurrection of Christ and the promise of our own. Christ’s empty tomb is full of hope
Prayer: Lord Jesus, Thank you for your death, burial, and resurrection which has given me hope of eternal life. Amen.
PEACE ON EARTH!
