The Resurrection of Jesus

Making a Difference

The Resurrection of Jesus – what does the resurrection of Jesus mean for us today? It gives us HOPE. The hope is that one day we will be made like Jesus in His resurrection and be with Him in Heaven.

In John 6:38 we read that Jesus came from Heaven 'For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.'

Likewise, in Acts 1:11 we read about Jesus being taken back up into Heaven 'Men of Galilee, they said, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.'

So what is this 'HOPE' we have through the resurrection of Jesus? It is that through the resurrection of Jesus that you believe in God and that the God of all hope fills you with all joy and peace, as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope, and that all who have this hope are purified just as Jesus is pure, being made spotless, and blameless as all your sins are forgiven.
