‘He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.’ Matthew 28:6
As Selwyn states: “The empty tomb is proof that God’s plan has worked.”
The empty tomb demonstrates to us that the suffering and death of Jesus on the cross for all our sins was totally accepted by God.
We can all be confident that the (ransom) price was paid in full and we have been set free from the chains of bondage held by Satan if we believe and personally accept this ‘free’ gift of salvation.Â
It’s important to understand that it’s our choice to accept the evidence provided in the Bible – of the empty tomb – which will enable us to enter into, and build upon, a new relationship (a new life) with Jesus, our God.
Likewise, it’s our own choice to turn away – to decline the offer – to not believe – and follow our desires – to live independent and without joy, while remaining under Satan’s influence and bondage.
Did you have the opportunity to explain the resurrection to someone?
