Delivered for Our Sins, Raised for Our Justification

Jesus was "delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification," according to Paul.If what this verse says is true, is true, then the resurrection of Jesus Christ is not just something we should be celebrating once a year, but every day. We are justified – declared guiltless before the perfect, holy God – because Jesus did not stay in the tomb but rose from the dead.Jesus’ resurrection is best-case-scenario for the world we live in; and so the good news of the Christian gospel is that the best-case-scenario for this world has actually come true.
