“Because He Lives” Part 2

Posted: April 4, 2023 in Christian Life, Evagelism, Gospel, Salvation, Spiritual Enemies

It is a well documented fact of history that Jesus Christ died on a cross as predicted in the Scriptures (Psalm 22; Philippians 2:8; Matthew 27:40-42). But why? To pay the penalty for all of our sins once and for all (Romans 6:23; Hebrews 10:10).

But thankfully He rose again bodily from the grave after being in the tomb for three days and nights. His resurrected body was different in that it had flesh and bones but no blood (Luke 24:33-43; 1 Corinthians 15:50).

It’s possible that many people who attend church and celebrate His resurrection haven’t been born again from above (John 3:3-6; 1 Peter 1:23).

But sadder still, many people “believe in vain.” They’re trusting in a false Christ or another way of salvation (1 Corinthians 15:2; 2 Corinthians 11:4; Ephesians 2:8, 9).

Many benefits are extended to true believers. They include –

A N_____ Life In Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 Corinthians 12:12, 13).

The unsaved person’s condition – helpless, hopeless, hell bound. Romans 5:6; 6:23; Ephesians 2:1, 12

The believer’s eternal life. – A free gift from God. John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8, 9

Application – Do others see any change in your life? James 2:18

Application: Are you living a defeated or a victorious Christian life? ____

Conclusion – If you’ve never placed your faith and trust in Christ alone, Who died for your sins…and rose again bodily for the dead, why not now?

If you have been saved, but aren’t living out your new life in Christ, or aren’t living a victorious, abundant, and useful life, why not confess your sins to the Father, claim His forgiveness, and begin a new chapter of your life for the glory of God and the good of others?
