God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it. Acts 2:24
Hallelujah for the resurrection of Jesus, it was impossible for death to keep Jesus in the grave, to keep him in its grip!
God the Father did the impossible, he raised Jesus to life again, thereby vindicating the perfect righteousness and sinlessness of Jesus life. Jesus who never sinned could not be killed either, he gave up his life! He took our sin upon himself and suffered death in our place, so that we by God’s grace could be forgiven!
The resurrection of Jesus forever silences all his critics, whatever anyone ever says about Jesus that contradicts what Jesus says about himself, must be submitted to the acid test, surely the one resurrected is the one God the Father has accepted as true and faithful. Jesus is the way the truth and the life!
May we all continue to rejoice in the resurrection everyday of the year!
- Acts 2:24
