Satisfied with God’s Great Love for Us

Last week, in the evening service, we spent the evening in worship focusing on God’s great love displayed for us in sending His Son to be the Saviour of the world. We celebrated the observance that Jesus instructed His followers to partake in as often as they do in remembrance of His death and shed blood for their sins on the cross. He was establishing the New Covenant between God and man through His own shed blood. That evening of Passover, Jesus ate the Passover Seder with them, washed their feet, gave them His final teachings, instituted this celebration, and prayed for His disciples before going to the Garden of Gethsemane, being arrested, and then crucified. Why did Jesus do this for us? Because of His love for us. Why did the Father send the Son to be the Saviour of the world? Because of His love for us. Today, we are celebrating the victory over death that we can benefit in by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is not a theoretical theology but rather a historic reality. In First Corinthians 15, Paul declares that after the resurrection of Jesus Christ He revealed Himself to the disciples and to over five hundred eyewitnesses. That is plenty of evidence for a provable historic event that was unchallenged by the people that lived at that time. For those who say Biblical Christianity is blind faith do not understand that it is based upon evidentiary fact of over five hundred eyewitnesses that saw Jesus Christ living, walking, and talking for forty days before He ascended back up into Heaven. The fact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is worthy of our faith and is not ignoring fact. So, Happy Resurrection Day to you, and if you have not put your faith in the risen Saviour to be your sacrifice for your own sins, today is a great day to do so. Base your eternal hope on the truth of God’s Word and the truth of the risen Saviour, instead of things that are far less evidentiary that people believe in all the time.
