Because of the resurrection, death has no hold.
For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him (Romans 6:9).
The evidence is overwhelming concerning the resurrection.
Jesus Christ is alive. He was raised from the dead just as he said.
And since Christ was raised, he cannot die again.
Paul put it this way, “death no longer has mastery over him” (Romans 6:9).
Now here is what that means to you.
Because he lives forever, you, as a Christian, will live forever.
If you have ever wondered about your eternal security, these words from Hebrews should erase all doubt and fear:
“Because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them” (Hebrews 7:24-25).
This verse should put an end to all the doubts and questions such as, “Have I done enough?” or “Have I been good enough?” The answer to both is “No!” But Jesus did do enough. He conquered sin and death once for all.
Because Jesus lives, you have been saved completely.
You are an eternal member of God’s family. You have crossed over from death to life. Death has no control over you. So today, “consider yourself dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:11). It’s true.
As my thanks for your gift this month I want to send you a copy of Trail of Assurance, a 2-CD audio series that explains the hope and assurance we have in Jesus. Taken from the book of Revelation, this series cuts through the noise of fear and legalism that characterizes most teaching on prophecy.
When you're finished listening, this would be an ideal way to share the power of the gospel with your friends. Let them borrow your copy or, better yet, invite them over to listen and dialogue together.
"Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades." He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 1:17, 18; 22:20 ESV)
