The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Devotional Communion) 30 September 2022 – Death And Resurrection Of Jesus Foretold
TOPIC: Death And Resurrection Of Jesus Foretold -Anglican Devotional Communion
READ: Mark 9:30-32 (NKJV)
- Then they departed from there and passed through Galilee, and He did not want anyone to know [it.]
- For He taught His disciples and said to them, “The Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him. And after He is killed, He will rise the third day.”
- But they did not understand this saying, and were afraid to ask Him.
Jesus Christ himself made it clear to his disciples that; “The Son of Man shall be delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and when he is killed, he will rise again after three days” (Mark 9:31). But not only did they not understand what He told them, the disciples were afraid to ask Him for an explanation. Jesus’ death and resurrection is the solid foundation of our faith. Going to church without this knowledge and appropriating it destroys the soul.
Jesus was despised, rejected by men, afflicted, wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities, and offered a sacrifice for sins. He was crucified on the cross of Calvary, died and was buried, and was resurrected on the third day.
Anyone who rejects this great sacrifice will suffer the horrors of the second death. Through death, Jesus destroyed the devil who has the power of death, thereby freeing those who were subjected to lifelong slavery through the fear of death. He is the life and the resurrection; make Him your Lord and Savior now for eternal peace and complete freedom. Because He has risen, all who have died in Christ will also be raised.
PRAYER: Help our unbelief Lord please help me to die to my sins and be established in Your righteousness in Jesus name. Amen.
