"Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, thought he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" " - John 11 V25, 26

"and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time." - 1 Corinthians 15 V4-8

Jesus Christ has indeed risen! The evidence is overwhelming and if the claim of Jesus to rise again on the third day hadn't been true, Christianity would have been a short lived religion and people who tried to destroy the Christian faith right from the first century would have been successful in doing so. But God in His wisdom and power rose Jesus from the dead and then He used simple people to preach the message of the Gospel to the entire world. Even today we find skeptics rejecting the resurrection of Jesus, but they do not want to search out the truth. The apostles along with five hundred brethren saw the resurrected Jesus, and apostle Paul and John the disciple also saw the Lord in His glory at two separate occasions. Jesus said, 'He is the resurrection and the life and those who believe in Him also shall be resurrected to live a glorious eternal life'. Do you believe in the resurrection of Jesus and have you committed your life to the Saviour? The evidence of a risen Saviour is overwhelming and the claims made by Christ are true. Trust in Him and receive the free gift of eternal life. Praise the Lord. He is risen! Happy Easter!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
