A bed rock fact of Christianity is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Good Friday was good because Jesus bore our punishment and died in our place. That is why we call Jesus’ death a substitutionary atonement.
On Sunday He broke the bonds of death and handed Satan a crushing defeat when He rose from the grave. Death could not hold Him. Satan could not kill Him. Sin could not destroy Him. He rose from the grave.
In writing to the Corinthian church Paul explained the significance of Christ’s resurrection.
- 17 “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.” (1Co 15:17-18 ESV)
- 57 “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” (1Co 15:57-58 ESV)
