Today’s 333 Devotional: “What Difference?”
In a couple of days, America is celebrating what is known as Easter, which really has nothing to do with a bunny and lays eggs, but rather it is all about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the greatest event of all time. It is the most powerful event in human history. It is more powerful than volcanic eruptions, devastating earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, or a nuclear explosion all put together. In fact, it is more powerful than Superman, and yes, I did just go there.
And the reason I say this is because it is the resurrection of Jesus that caused history to split into two parts: B.C. and A.D. Now, that is what I call powerful. In fact, it is so powerful that it can change the direction and the course of all our lives.
And, while I know that our calendars are based upon Jesus’s birth and not His resurrection, but if it hadn’t been for His resurrection, then there would be no reason to record or even celebrate Jesus’s birth, and thus change humanity’s calendar. In fact, there would be no need to celebrate Christmas, or for any of us to come on Sunday morning to worship Him.
Now, in our society, most people ask, “So what?” What difference does the resurrection of Jesus makes and how does it apply to me? So, what if Jesus is alive? What’s the big deal? How can something that happened 2000 years ago have any bearing on my life today?
What difference does Jesus’s resurrection make? if Jesus didn’t rise from the dead, then all that we believe and hold onto, is empty, useless, and void of any meaning.
What difference does Jesus’s resurrection make? Because Jesus died and rose from the dead, our sins are forgiven, we have a purpose to live out through the power and promises of Jesus Christ, and our eternal future is secured in heaven.
The message of Jesus’s resurrection is that we can have a brand new life and an eternity with God.
