Easter Joy to All
The Easter news brings us great joy, Jesus' resurrection from death on the third day is proof that we too will have eternal life in heaven, as Jesus promises us.
Paul said "I passed on to you, as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
Paul wrote Romans in about 57 A.D. when he was on the road to Jerusalem, perhaps in Turkey or Greece. In this letter he introduced himself and his beliefs to the Christians in Rome as he planned to visit them, on this missionary trip which turned out to be his last.
And Jesus Christ our Lord was shown to be the Son of God when God powerfully raised him from the dead by means of the Holy Spirit. Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name.
Such good news for all who believe in Jesus.
