Today we celebrate Jesus' resurrection, by which He was declared the Son of God with power and through which He has become the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
Jesus Christ beat sin on Friday and death on Sunday. There's so much that the Bible says about those. But our older brother, Christ Himself, also set the tone and pattern for us in being raised from the dead. Whoever looks on Him in confidence receives the same kind of life, indeed the very same Spirit that raised Him from the dead (Rom. 8.11).
What is ours because of this? We share with our older brother in the same inheritance from the Father. We are loved as He is loved. We are imbued with power as He has power. We are unionized with Him in His victory.
Happy Easter everyone. He is risen. He is risen indeed.
