πŸ‘‘ Christ Died for Our Sins and…

We rejoice in Christ’s resurrection and the life we have in Him. However, it is troubling to find that there are teachings out there that say that all you need to believe to be saved is that Christ died for your sins. Some say that faith in Christ’s resurrection isn’t necessary to be saved because our salvation is based solely on Christ’s payment for our sins at the Cross, and they’ll intentionally leave out the Resurrection. However, this is not Pauline. The gospel of the grace of God (Acts 20:24)Β includesΒ the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Paul stresses in his letters the importance of believing that Christ is risen from the dead. Note the following verses:

β€œAnd therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness…But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on Him thatΒ raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead” (Rom. 4:22,24).

β€œThat if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart thatΒ God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Rom. 10:9).

β€œFor I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; AndΒ that He was buried,Β and that He rose again the third dayΒ according to the Scriptures (1 Cor. 15:3,4).

Unbelievers must trust that Christ is risen in order to be saved, so believers need to stress Christ’s deathΒ andΒ resurrection when they share the gospel of grace. When Paul writes about our spiritual baptism with Christ, we are not only identified with His death, but also His burialΒ and resurrectionΒ (Rom. 6:3,4). According to Colossians 2:10, we β€œare complete in Him,” because we have been identified with Christ’s death, burial,Β and resurrectionΒ (Col. 2:11,12) the moment weΒ believedΒ in His death, burial, and resurrection.

Christ died for our sins and… He rose again the third day. Don’t leave out the resurrection! It’s crucial to our faith and salvation. We have God’s Word on it. As Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:17, β€œIf Christ be not raised, your faith is vain [empty]; ye are yet in your sins.” But because β€œChrist is risen from the dead,” those β€œin Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Cor. 15:20,22). That should cause us to want to shout for joy! source
