Daily Devotional: Can you be sure your sins are forgiven?

[Jesus] was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification.

Romans 4:25


Ponder This

A skeptic was talking with a little girl one day. She loved the Lord Jesus with all of her heart. He was trying to shake her faith and said, “Young lady, Christianity is not the only religion, you know. There are plenty of religions in the world. There are plenty of Christs. Which Christ do you believe in?” She thought for a minute and said, “I believe in the One who was raised from the dead.” Amen! That’s the One I believe in, too!

The death of Christ on the cross without His resurrection cannot save you. If Christ died on the cross and that is all that happened, then Jesus was just one more religious leader.

How can we know for sure that God accepted His payment for sin? Proof positive: He raised Jesus from the dead. If Jesus is still in the grave, your hope of heaven is not worth half a hallelujah.

Practice This

This week, take comfort in the fact that His resurrection brings the offer of replenishment and restoration to all mankind.
