“It was easy” by Jonathan Edwards

via “It was easy” by Jonathan Edwards

The resurrection of Christ was absolutely a miracle. And it was a far greater miracle than parting the Red Sea or causing Jericho to fall or cleansing a leper because it was the miracle that freed us from sin and death.

However, in admitting that, we must remember how big of a God we serve, and how even the most impossible-sounding miracle is as easy as a snap of the fingers for the God of the universe who created all things by simply saying the words, “Let there be x.”

This is the God we serve. He raised Christ from the dead for us. Probably as simply as Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead: “Lazarus come out” (John 11:43). God likely said, “Christ come out,” and bang! He was raised to life again.

If God can do that (better: if God did do that) then who are we to worry and complain about our lives? God is in control. As Paul wrote in Romans 8:32,

“He did not even spare His own Son but offered Him up for us all; how will He not also with Him grant us everything?”

God didn’t leave His Son in the grave either but raised Him up powerfully. God exhibited in full 4k HD just how powerful He is through this miracle.

Do we sit around and mope about our lives, wondering if God can really do for us what we want Him to do? Do we worry about our lives? Do we fail to realize that God works all things out for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28)?

We must trust wholeheartedly in our God who raised His Son from the grave with no more difficulty than it takes you or me to raise a pencil. In fact, i would be willing to bet that it was even less difficult than that for God to raise Christ from the dead.

This is the God we serve. Place your faith in Him. And if you already have believed in Him, please place your faith in Him.

Soli Deo Gloria
