He’s Risen!

The Great Edi Unogu from Anabra state) The Eastern Part of Nigeria) many years ago boasted and promised he’d come back from the dead like Jesus and talk to his friends. He promised to prove to the world that any one can rise from the dead and not Jesus alone. Some actually consulted mediums to see if there was any word from beyond the grave as he had boasted of. But there wasn’t! He never rose up again and that was the end of Him.

Only one man who promised to rise from the dead kept his promise. Jesus! And he did it ‘to make us right with God’ (Romans 4:25). Today all over the world, He’s talked about by believers and celebrated as the Risen King!

On Good Friday Jesus laid down the price, on Easter Sunday God picked it up, and your salvation was paid for. How marvelous! But the greatest proof of the resurrection is found in the transformed lives of people all over the world. A songwriter put it like this: ‘You ask me how I know he lives? He lives within my heart!’ In one of his final appearances recorded in the book of Revelation, Jesus announced: ‘I am he who lives, and was dead, and, behold, I am alive forevermore…Whoever lives and believes in me shall never die’ (Revelation 1:18; John 11:26 NKJV).

Today Christ stands knocking at the door of your heart, saying, ‘If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in…’ (Revelation 3:20 NKJV). Unless you know Christ personally as your Saviour, you’re without hope in this world and the one to come. The resurrection of Christ is your only hope. Without that you have nothing to look forward to but a hole in the ground. So today repent of your sins and place your trust in the one who died and rose again for you.

Happy Easter everyone. May our ashes be turned into beauties… Now and always!
