Pentecost

As born again believers our lives should be impacted by Pentecost. We have been given all we need by the resurrection of Christ and the gift of the Holy Spirit. I believe that the greatest event in human history is undisputed. It is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the cornerstone of the arch of salvation.

If we remove it, the whole structure of the plan of salvation crumbles into dust. The Good News of the Gospel is that Christ died for our sins and that He rose again. The resurrection of Christ is proof that His death atoned for sin. The wages of one single sin is death. One sin brought the curse of death upon all mankind.

Think about that. If Jesus had paid for all the sins of mankind except one, He could not have risen, for one sin would have been enough to keep Him in the tomb. The proof that His sacrifice was complete, is that He rose from the dead. He had completely met redemption’s price. When He cried, “It is finished,” the work was fully done. God was satisfied and then proved the completeness of the work by raising Christ from the dead.

It does not stop there though. Because Christ did not remain in the tomb but conquered death by rising again, we can live in the joy of the full salvation provided by a risen, living, coming again Redeemer.

The circumstances in our lives will not change His ability to move in our lives. I don’t know where life has brought you today. I don’t know where the consequences of your choices has left you. But I do know that power of God through Jesus Christ can restore joy and peace in the midst of your circumstances. May God keep you and bless you and make His face to shine upon you. God bless you.
