The Meaning of the Resurrection

Paul makes a fascinating statement in Romans 1:4 concerning the resurrection. He says, "And declared to be the Son of God with power according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead." Paul was saying that because Jesus was holy as a man, the Spirit of God declared Him to be holy by the resurrection. Since He was holy, death had no legal hold on Him, and now He has resurrected as the Son of God with power.

The resurrection means many things for the believer. Because of the resurrection, we have a sacrifice for all sin (Hebrews 10:12). The resurrection means we have a high priest that has entered into the holy of holies and lives to make intercession for us (Hebrews 7:25, 9:24). The resurrection means we have access to the very presence of God, to the holy of holies, and can receive grace and mercy to help in the time of need (Hebrews 4:16).

The resurrection means we can be justified from our sins and overcome the devil (Romans 3:23-25, Revelation 12:11). The resurrection means that we can be born again and become sons of God (John 1:12-13). The resurrection means that we are new creatures in Christ; old things have passed away (II Corinthians 5:17).

The resurrection means that there will be a judgment for both the good and the evil, the good to everlasting life and the evil to everlasting damnation (Acts 17:30, Revelation 20:11-15). Finally, the resurrection means that we have a blessed hope. We shall all be changed, put on immortality, and meet the Lord in the air (I Corinthians 15:51-52, I Thessalonians 4:13-18). Let's keep our eyes on the Lord, waiting for that blessed hope to come to pass when we will meet the Lord Jesus.
