He is not here; for He is risen – Matthew 28:6a.
Many Christians world over are still stuck at the Cross and have not yet moved beyond it. There is a Christian life to live beyond the Cross; we received forgiveness of sins and salvation at the Cross but now we have to live that salvation life.
“So come on, let’s leave the preschool fingerpainting exercises on Christ and get on with the grand work of art. Grow up in Christ. The basic foundational truths are in place: turning your back on “salvation by self-help” and turning in trust toward God; baptismal instructions; laying on of hands; resurrection of the dead; eternal judgment. God helping us, we’ll stay true to all that. But there’s so much more. Let’s get on with it!” Hebrews 6:1-3 MSG.
There is so much more to our salvation and a life to be lived after receiving what Christ did for us at the Cross, let us push forward and enjoy the benefits of a life lived in the Spirit and fellowship with our risen Savior.
