The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the great turning point of creation. It is the singular moment upon which the Eternal Now rests. The present, past, and future revolve around the point of redemption like the galaxies of the universe in monumental motion.
To the eyes of those who witnessed it, it began as a shattering act of cruelty upon an innocent man– a Man Who walked the earth healing, helping, loving, and delivering from heartbreak. Sickness and pain, oppression, enslavement, loneliness, and even death were no contest for Him.
An unjust trial condemned an innocent man to the brutality of the cross.
The pinnacle of evil manifested itself in the hatred that was flung upon Him like the spittle of the soldiers who abused him.
Words can’t be found to describe the importance of Christ’s suffering, death, and powerful resurrection from the grave. He who proclaimed, “I am the Resurrection and the Life” (John 11 :25) proved that death could not hold him.
The crucifixion–the epic act of ultimate evil, was turned to serve the magnificent purpose of God, the redemption of mankind.
For the earth and God’s children, it is salvation and the hope of everlasting life.
What Jesus once spoke to Mary he says to us today: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26 nkjv)
Alleluia! Christ is risen indeed! All honor and glory and praise belong to our Lord Jesus Christ!
