No Grave Can Hold Him
"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead. . ." Matthew 28:6-7
Jesus spent three days in the pits of hell. The devil thought he had Him bound. He thought the victory was in the bag, so to speak, but the Greater One wasn't through. No grave was powerful enough to hold the King of kings and Lord of lords! He bore the weight of our sins on the cross. He fought the powers of hell and defeated death for you and me. On the third day, when all of hell was rejoicing at the thought of defeating the Son of God, He rose from the dead!
The victory that Jesus purchased for us on Calvary not only opened the door for us to be forgiven of our sins and enter into heaven, but it also gave us the opportunity to live triumphantly now in this life. He fought the battle. He paved the way. Jesus gained the victory for us over two thousand years ago when He conquered the grave!
In your own life, you might be going through some difficult times. The weight of some circumstances can make it feel like victory is never going to come and that all hope is lost. Refuse to believe that lie of the devil! Because with Christ, even though it might seem like the victory is far away, we can be assured that our Sunday is on its way! There is a light at the end of the tunnel and His name is Jesus!
God's not dead! Jesus is alive and well and sitting up on the heavenly throne. He arose just like He said! He's alive just like He said! If He can rise from the dead, He can handle anything you may be going through! He can bring your situation up out the grave and back to life! Thank God He is risen and has given us His abundant life!
