Welcome back fashion lovers,
Today is Resurrection Sunday! Even with all that is going on it’s important to remember what today is all about and to give God praise in spite of what is going on.
This month I started an April Easter Bible reading plan that I have throughly enjoyed. You can view it here. Today, I want to share with you 5 Bible verses that have really touched my spirit while on this plan.
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
1 Corinthians 15:4 KJV
In this verse, Paul, the Apostle, is writing to the Christian Church in Corinth. He is telling them about how Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. He also lets them know that he was buried in a tomb but, on the third day the resurrection takes place.
“Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again.”
Matthew 20:18-19 KJV
These 2 verses tell the summary of what will happen to Jesus during the crucifixion and resurrection period.
“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
Isaiah 53:5 KJV
Jesus went through all this pain for our sins. He sacrificed his life for God’s people. Which is amazing! He didn’t know us but he loved us. For that alone, we owe him.
“And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.”
Luke 23:46-47 KJV
At this point the crucifixion has taken place. Jesus has submitted unto the will of his of father to die on the cross. The centurion sees this and realizes that Jesus is the son of God and starts to praise God.
“And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.”
Acts 3:15 KJV
I want to use this verse as a declaration. I BELIEVE THAT GOD ALLOWED HIS ONLY SON, JESUS CHRIST, TO DIE FOR THE SINS OF A LOST WORLD. HE KNEW WE WOULD MESS UP AND FALL SHORT BUT HE LOVED US ENOUGH TO SACRIFICE THE LIFE OF HIS SON. JESUS ACCEPTED THIS CHARGE ON HIS LIFE AND WASHED ALL SIN AWAY AND GOES TO HIS FATHER ON OUR BEHALD. DEATH COULD NOT HOLD HM, MY SAVIOR GOT UP 🙌🏾
I hope you all had an Happy Resurrection Sunday! Even though sad times are going on, I hope you have an immeasurable amount of peace and that you remembered how much Jesus loves us all. We will get through this.
