A rising above mortality through the understanding of spiritual life as demonstrated by Jesus
Easter Scriptures to Celebrate: He is Risen! NIV
“As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will.
He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:
‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”
“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,”
Corinthians 6: 14
“And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.”
“We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.”
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”
“For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”
“For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.”
“If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.”
“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.”
“That I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,”
