*Grace for you today ! *
“And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!”
I Corinthians 15:17 NKJV
This is a wonderful defense from the Apostle Paul where he clarifies to those who had doubts whether Jesus is truly risen or not.He says if Christ is not risen , then there is nothing to believe and we are still in sins .
Let’s put the same statement in reverse order : If Christ is risen , then your faith has meaning and is full of power.Importantly ,you are not in sins at all anymore.
Some of us struggle to believe on the teaching that all our sins ( past , present and future) were forgiven .
A few ask for reference and here is the reference and this is the defense -* God who is eternal , not living in time , can see the past , the present and the future sins of mankind . He took all these sins and placed it on the body of Jesus Christ and completely punished all sin on the body of Jesus *- Romans 8:3.* Thereby, God has put away all sins even before we came into existence .*
God raised Jesus from the dead , leaving behind all sin in hell so that we can walk in newness of life -Romans 6:4
If you believe this, you will experience the resurrection power and live victoriously in all aspects of live.
Praise Jesus !
