Jesus had a life that the grave could not keep. While He carried my sins and yours to the grave and left them there, Jesus came out of that grave risen and victorious!
When Jesus rose for me and you 2,000 years ago, we rose with Him! The Bible says, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20).
Christians are not just nice people—they are new creatures. We have come out of the grave of the old life. Our old master has no more hold over us. We have no more penalty to pay. Our sins are buried in the grave of God’s forgetfulness.
