"The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all the faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The Lord has spoken" (Isaiah 25:8 NIV).
Hallelujah! Christ is Risen! Our Savior has fulfilled God's plan for the salvation of His people who believe. Truly we must praise Him for His powerful gift that restores our relationship with our Maker. He has erased all our wrongs and clothed us in brilliant white. Alleluia!
If we truly are believers of Jesus Christ and celebrate His resurrection, all that we do in our lives will reflect the ultimate victory over sin. Everything we do has eternal results. Though we may often see no effects of our deeds, one day our lives will be measured against God's standards and we will be judged accordingly. It will be enough because Jesus Christ stands in the balance for us. And that is reason to celebrate!
"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain" (1 Corinthians 15: 55-58 NIV).
