"Would you like a little book about the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior?" said a man as he spoke to a woman in the door of a little mountain cabin.
"Oh, yes, thank you! I often look at Him!" she answered as she asked him into her home.
"Do you? Where?" he asked.
Pointing to a picture on the wall above the fireplace, she exclaimed, "There!" The picture was a painting of Christ on the cross.
"Ah, but He is not there on the cross anymore. He was there once, but He is not there now. He was there to do the work of redemption. He is not there now, because the work is all done. He is now in heaven at the right hand of God."
This was a new and wonderful truth to her. She knew that Christ had died on the cross, but had never grasped that He is now risen and glorified.
Yes, Christ is risen. The Apostle Paul says, If Christ be not raised, your faith is vain. But our faith is not vain! To us who believe, His resurrection is the blessed proof that our sins are blotted out forever.
Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. 1 Cor. 15:3, 4
