What Does Jesus' Death and Resurrection Mean to You?

As we near Resurrection Sunday (or "Easter"), our thoughts should linger on the wondrous work on the cross. Several words come to mind when I think about Jesus' Resurrection:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
(John 3:16)

 “Greater love hath no man than this, 
that a man lay down his life for his friends.” 
(John 15:13)

 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” 
(John 8:36)

“But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed 
from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 
Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” 
(Romans 6:17-18)

New Life
 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: 
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 
(2 Corinthians 5:17)

 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: 
that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, 
even so we also should walk in newness of life.” 
(Romans 6:4)

“For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: 
for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 
But if we hope for that we see not, 
then do we with patience wait for it.” 
(Romans 8:24-25)

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again 
unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 
To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, 
and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 
Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation 
ready to be revealed in the last time.” 
(1 Peter 1:3-5)

What does Christ’s Resurrection mean for you?
