Why the Resurrection of Jesus Is Important?

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 213

Jesus was nailed to the cross by the Roman soldiers after he was handed over by his disciple, Judas Iscariot. Jesus rose on the third day of his death. When Jesus died, he went down into the Hades and freed the souls that were captives. In the Old Testament times, the soul of people who die will go down into the Hades. Ephesians 4:8 says that Jesus has descended into the Hades and led them up to heaven. 1 Peter 3:18 - 20, Jesus preached to the spirits in the prison of Hades when he went there. The dead were raised from the graves after Jesus' death (Matthew 27:52). On the third day, God raised Jesus from the dead.

The resurrection of Jesus is important because it means victory for Christians. Without Jesus' resurrection, there will be no atonement for our sins. If Jesus did not resurrect from the dead, there will be no resurrection of the dead. If there is no resurrection of the dead, it will be useless for us to believe in Jesus. Jesus was raised from the dead so that we can reconcile with God (1 Corinthians 15:12 - 34).

Every one of us is a sinner. The first man and woman, Adam and Eve, whom God created sinned by eating the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. They sinned by disobeying God's command to not eat from the tree. Satan deceived Eve by telling her eating the fruit won't cause her to die but will open her eyes so that she will discern right from wrong. Eve decided not to listen to God and she ate the fruit. Then, she gave it to Adam and he ate it. Therefore, the seed of sin is in the genes of human kind. No matter if you sin, you are still a sinner because the gene of sin is in you. Because sin separates us from God, Jesus had to come to die for us on the cross. Jesus made himself a sacrifice for our sins so that we can be saved and inherit eternal life (Romans 5:6 - 14).

Romans 10:9 says that if you confess that Jesus is Lord and believe God raised him from the dead on the third day, you will be saved. After you accepted Jesus, you must get baptised into a bible believing church. You must keep God's commandment. The Bible contains God's commandment and promises. The Bible is the word of God. It is important that you live your life for Jesus and stop sinning. After you have accepted Jesus, you must confess all your sins to Jesus and ask him to use his blood to wash away your sins. You must stop sinning. Sin separates us from God. If you sin, you must confess it and ask Jesus to forgive you. If you have no strength to change your bad habit, you can ask Jesus to help you. Whatever your need, you can discuss with Jesus and ask him to help you. Every day, you must read the Bible and set a side some time to worship God. offers free bible study for everyone.
