The miracle of the resurrection, described in the Bible, is the most important miracle of the Christian faith. When Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the first Easter morning, he showed people that the hope he proclaimed in his Gospel message was real, and so was God’s power at work in the world, believers say.
f you’re like most people, you need a breakthrough in some area of your life today – whether it’s with your health, your finances, or your family. The good news is that God cares about every area of your life, and He has already declared His desire to bless you “in all things”
So how does God release His miracles and turn things around in our lives? Through the awesome power of the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Not only were these events pivotal in the history of the world, but they can also transform every part of your life today.
Proof of the Resurrection
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most attested events in history. After Jesus’ death, no one … not even His family or disciples … believed Jesus was who He claimed to be. Except for John, each of the disciples ran from the cross, and Peter repeatedly denied that he even knew Jesus.
When Mary Magdalene and the other women came to Jesus’ tomb on Easter Sunday morning, they came to anoint His dead body. But why, when Jesus had told them at least FIVE TIMES that He was going to rise again? (See Matthew 16:21, 17:9, 17:22-23, 20:17-19, 26:32.) Not only did Jesus tell them He was going to be crucified and rise again on the third day, but He even told them to meet Him in Galilee after He had been resurrected.
What convinced these disillusioned followers He had been raised from the dead? They were eyewitness to the miracle of the resurrection! They saw Him (John 20:18)… talked with Him (Luke 24:13-34) … ate with Him (John 21:12-13) … and even touched His nail-scarred body (John 20:24-29). At one point, the resurrected Christ appeared to more than 500 people at once (1 Corinthians 15:3-8).These powerful eyewitness experiences convinced them that Jesus was risen indeed.
A Powerful Presence
The people who encountered Jesus during the 40 days between his resurrection and ascension all discovered a powerful sense of hope because of his presence with them, the Bible says.it be that Jesus is waiting patiently in your life to give you evidence of his power that has not been diluted or depleted since that first Easter morning? Are you so focused on what your situation is, which looks so radically different from what you had imagined, that you can’t see him? Have your tears blinded you to him? Are you so focused on your own pain or grief or confusion or helplessness or hopelessness that you are missing out on the greatest blessing you will ever receive? Could it be, at this very moment in your life, that Jesus is right there with you?”
Your Resurrection Miracle
What does the miracle of the resurrection mean in your life today? Recall the story of the crippled man in John 5 who sat at the edge of the Pool of Bethesda. He sat there every day, waiting for the angel of the Lord to stir the waters so he could be healed.
Because of the resurrection, you don’t need to sit at the edge of the healing waters any longer. God is stirring the waters of His miracle-working power for you TODAY … opening doors for you to receive His salvation, deliverance, abundance, healing, and eternal life. Don’t wait any longer! Jump into the miracle waters purchased for you by Jesus’ resurrection. God is stirring the waters, so you can believe Him for the supernatural breakthrough you need.
Christ is risen! And because of His resurrection power, you can walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and experience miracles and blessings in your life
