“Do You Have Any Identification?”

April 3, 2020

On April 12 this year Christians will celebrate the glorious RESURRECTION of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. No doubt God will use the observance of this historically verifiable event to prompt everyone He can to consider what it means that only one human in history has ever conquered death, our ultimate enemy. If there is no such thing as actual death (“the end of life”), Resurrection is superfluous—and our Hope is diluted.
 
If we are to maximize our vast spiritual potential, we must know WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST. Paul’s epistles show us our complete identification with our risen Lord and Savior—in his life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and newness of life. What the risen Christ said to his disciples just before his ascension is what he now says to you and me: “I am with you always, even to the very end of the age.” Our Lord Jesus is not an “absent Christ,” as he would be had he “departed” from us. Instead, he disappeared, and thus created an invisible presence.
