Christ’s resurrection: A victory over sin


If Christ has not been raised from the dead, the human salvation would have failed big time as well. The future of the human race will be in great jeopardy, and the earth will be forever filled with every evil thing imagined. Woe to the creation formed after the likeness of God for he will be doomed to extinction with nothing can even save him from.

But God cannot fail. The Christ would triumph, and he did. His resurrection is a victory over sin for anyone who believes and accepts him as a personal savior. Through him, the gap between the human and the divine has been bridged again just like way it used to be. The prophecy has been fulfilled in him, and through him.

Just imagine how it will be like to live without the assurance of a life after death. It will not make us any different and any better from any other form of animals, isn’t it? From birth you will grow up to undergo with such a process of making you become an adult. Upon reaching adulthood, you’ll then start counting days, months, or years until such time you close your eyes and give up the ghost. That’s how it’s going to be and that’s how it will end for our species. And it’s all because of sin. The disobedience committed by our first parents, Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden has formulated the sin that would fall upon the entire human race. It was, in fact, a curse by which to expose every human DNA to decay and death.

But God’s love for us is greater than we could possibly measure or imagine. He has given us his most precious gem, his only begotten son Jesus Christ, to do the job. Christ was the solution; the sacrificial lamb for reconciliation between man and God. Christ restored all that has been lost and broken; he was making all things new. He took up the human flesh, lived among us, died on the cross, and rose from the dead. His resurrection is a victory over sin.
