When believe is first awarded to sinners at the cross in hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ and the good news of His accomplishment we can be assured that our old sin nature is crucified with Christ. Not only that but that He has given to us His righteousness as the sacrificial Lamb when we believe.

As young believers what we don't realize that which we have left to deal with is self. Dealing with self is a lifetime process. Yet there comes a time when we come to the end of self and Christ comes in to be our all in all.

That's not to say that we don't still have our shortcomings but that they are no longer our driving force.

We have made our home in Christ. I am the Beloved 's and the Beloved is mine.

This is what He did for and resurrected to share in us.

Happy resurrection day!

The Resurrection: Hope and Consequences​


The Resurrection: Hope and Consequences

The Resurrection: Hope and Consequences​


Apr9by Michael Snow

Here in Romania, on the second day of celebrating the Resurrection, our pastor’s text from Luke 24 concerned two perplexed disciples on the Road to Emmaus. Their state of mind is best summed up in their words, “We had hoped…”
crux

In their encounter with the resurrected Jesus, that dashed hope blooms as he breaks bread with them and they recognize him. Rushing back to Jerusalem, they find the other disciples also rejoicing. The worst moment in their lives, the Crucifixion, has now been transformed into the most hope filled day of their lives. “The Lord has risen indeed.”
Hope abounds and persists. Years later Peter wrote, “3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,…” (1 Peter 1).

Our hope is rooted in, and confirmed by, the Resurrection. But the Resurrection also has consequences. As Paul told those who worshiped other gods,
Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” Acts 17
And the responsibility for conveying that message is given to us. “Ye will be my witnesses.”

Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him. Acts 5:31-32
The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. Hebrews 10:13-17
"My righteousness shall be forever and My salvation from generation to generation." Isaiah 51:7-8
