We Can Be Forgiven Due to Christ’s Victory over Sin
Case 8: Jesus Christ
Why is it so important to believe Christ rose from the dead?
If Christ had not risen from the dead, sinners would have no hope for forgiveness or eternal life. Christ's resurrection proved He is more powerful than sin or sin's penalty. 1 Corinthians 15:17 – And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!
This Truth Makes
If Christ had not risen from the dead, then sin and death would have proven their power over Him. But since He beat sin and death by coming back from the dead, He has won the ultimate victory. The One Who conquered sin and death once never needs to conquer them again: They are defeated by Jesus Christ. It is finished, once for all.
Hebrews 1:3 – Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
Christ has removed the sting of death. No longer should we be fearful of eternal death and hell if we are placing our trust in Him. Christ’s victory over sin and death proves we can be forgiven and have new life by grace through faith in Him!
