Mark 9


Within three days Jesus' followers went from heartbroken sadness to triumphant jubilation. The cross screamed, "The End," making them feel hopeless and helpless. But the resurrection trumpeted, "The Beginning," bringing confidence and courage. The cloud of doubt and despair that had shrouded them melted away and was replaced with unshakeable faith.


Can you imagine how they felt when they realized Jesus had risen from the dead? Suddenly hope came alive; now everything He had said was validated as truth. They had not believed a lie. His victory over death was the acid test that forever sealed their sure conviction that He was the Messiah.


We commemorate Jesus' death on the cross with solemnity, but the resurrection calls for thunderous applause, praise, and song. All the blessings that come our way through the Savior's cross are confirmed by the resurrection. It proved that the Father was satisfied with the Son's payment for our sins. Now we can know that our transgressions are forgiven and we're eternally secure.


What's more, Jesus promises that we, too, will be resurrected and given new bodies. Physical death could not hold Him, nor will it overpower us. Because He overcame the grave, His followers have the same kind of life He has - eternal and indestructible.


As Christians, we have the right to celebrate Easter with great rejoicing. Because of this event, our lives have been forever changed. We've been transformed and given new life. With unwavering faith, we trust the Bible because Christ's power over the grave proves He can and will fulfill every word.
