Slow of Heart to Believe God’s Word.
Early in the morning, the women, faithful followers of Jesus Christ, ran to the disciples to report what they had seen. Jesus had vanished from the tomb and indeed as prophesied and promised, resurrected from the dead. Sadly, the disciples discarded the Good News, as they did not seem to discern the truth.
Jesus spent a lot of time with the disciples, unpacking the scriptures, teaching crowds and declaring himself the fulfilment of Prophecy, in the face of the religious leaders. Yet many still did not recognise Him as the Messiah, including some of His closest disciples.
Despite all they witnessed, the disciples were not fully convinced Jesus was the Redeemer (Luke 24:21).
Jesus was essentially a controversial figure. He came with a purpose, to fulfil the great work of Redemption. Many were astonished and bewildered at His death, leading to disillusionment in the hearts of many, including the disciples.
CHRIST THE REDEEMER
Let your heart be confident this hour. Believe in the Spirit of God who has revealed Christ to you. God’s Word is firmly engraved on the tablet of your heart by the Holy Spirit.
THE RANSOM FOR SIN HAS BEEN PAID. THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE HAS BEEN MADE.
Christ’s resurrection from the dead is not an illusion, it is not a fable or myth. It is living and real.
Rejoice, and again I say, Rejoice. CHRIST the REDEEMER of SOULS is RISEN.
