Did you know that the excruciating cross of Jesus Christ is meaningless without His empty tomb? Who needs a dead savior? Or, can a dead savior saves you?
Remember, when Jesus Christ was crucified, most of His Disciples deserted Him and cowered in fear. However, when they saw Jesus Christ resurrected from the dead, all of His Disciples became bold and courageous in proclaiming the Gospel of GOD’s Grace, even unto their gruesome deaths. Why so? Because now they understood GOD’s Gift of total salvation for them.
The excruciating CROSS or the death by extreme pain and suffocation of Jesus Christ (His whole body mangled beyond recognition), the Sinless Substitute, signifies punishment – full payment and total removal – of man’s sins, once and for all. For GOD requires blood as payment for our sins: And without the shedding of the blood, there is no forgiveness (for sins). (Hebrews 9: 22).
The empty TOMB or the resurrection of Jesus Christ means GOD’s absolute acceptance of His blood sacrifice – as full payment for and in behalf of all the sins of all people who will believe in Him. This also means that all people, whether we like it or not, will also be resurrected someday, even if we incur physical death here on earth. Finally, the resurrection of Jesus Christ means that whatever He said was true – that He is the Messiah, the Son of GOD or GOD’s Word who became flesh and dwelt among us, the only WAY to GOD, the absolute TRUTH, and the only Source of our eternal LIFE with GOD in Heaven someday.
So, next time you display a CROSS pendant in front of your body, why not include an empty TOMB emblem, to remind yourself of the total or complete salvation package that GOD has freely given you through faith in Jesus Christ? (Just kidding.)
