He Now Lives

Jesus' power to save did not end at his death. Since he is God, the Lord of life, death could not confine him. He rose from the dead three days after his burial and then appeared to hundreds of his followers before ascending back to heaven. As he had promised, he sent us his Holy Spirit to be our personal Counselor, teaching us and transforming us to live according to God's will.

The disciples of Jesus preached that Jesus was alive. Many suffered persecution and martyrdom for proclaiming that Jesus was alive. Today, Christians throughout the world also confess that Jesus is alive. He is the glorious Lord of heaven, worthy of our praise and worship. Because he is alive, he still answers prayers, transforms lives, and gives the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.

Our Lord Jesus gives this beautiful promise to his believers: "because I live, you will live also" (John ). By his resurrection and the renewal of his Spirit, we can now have a new life, a life full of meaning and hope, a life everlasting.
