Verse of the Day

[Jesus] was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. —Romans 4:25

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Why are the Cross and the Empty Tomb so important? Everything essential and truly lasting in this life and our salvation in the life to come depends upon Jesus’ death and resurrection! Jesus came to earth, lived among us as one of us, went to the cross, was buried in a borrowed tomb, and was raised victorious over death, sin, and hell for us — to erase our sins and bring us to life as God’s holy children. Jesus did what he did for us. The love of God demonstrated to us in Christ Jesus is staggeringly gracious!


My Prayer…

Thank you, dear Father, for paying such an awful price for cleansing me of my sins. Thank you, precious Savior, for sacrificing everything to save me. Thank you, Holy Spirit, for cleansing me and living inside me to conform me to Christ. I pray in his name, Jesus of Nazareth, my Savior and Lord. Amen.

  1. Romans 4:25
    He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.

    Jesus willing laid down His life which was pure, perfect, and holy; because we who were sinful, guilty, and vile needed justification before God (2 Corinthians 5:21). We had no way of paying for our sins that God would accept so Jesus left the splendor of heaven and came to this world to become our complete and final sacrifice for sin. When His blood flowed down that cross, all who placed their faith in Him had their sins atoned for. Christ’s blood covers all our sin (Matthew 26:28, Ephesians 1:7)!

    He was raised from death to life for our justification. In order to demonstrate God’s complete satisfaction with the work of Christ on the cross, God raised Jesus to life. Our justification is the result that is assured by the resurrection. There could have been no justification if Christ had remained in the tomb. But the fact that He rose tells us three things; the work is finished, the price has been paid, and God is totally satisfied with the sin-atoning work of our Lord and Savior!

    What a loving, merciful God we have and what a wonderful, compassionate Savior we serve! We had absolutely no possible way of atoning for our sin before God which meant an eternity in hell. But God, for some reason, loved us and sent Jesus to rescue us and provide a way for us to spend eternity in heaven with Him! Have you thanked Him today? Have you told Him that you love Him? Do you prove your love for Him by living in obedience to His Word? If not, start today off right and live a life that is centered on Jesus (Romans 12:1-2), seeking His will and ways for you!

    My precious Lord Jesus, I love You so! Thank You for coming to this wicked world and paying my sin debt to God with Your own blood on the cross at Calvary. I will never be able to thank and praise You enough. I purpose to live for Your glory my Redeemer and to praise You not just with my lips but with my entire life, Amen!
