Christ, the Victor over death (1)

He who was dead sat up and began to speak. And he presented him to his mother.
Luke 7: 15.

Christ, the Victor over death (1)
When Jesus was here on earth, He raised three dead persons to life, two of them young people, one a grown man. He thus proved Himself to be the Victor over death before destroying the devil “who had the power of death” (Hebrews 2:14), through His own death on the cross. Each of these resurrections contains particular instruction for us.

Here it is a question of a young man, the son of a widow of the city of Nain. Like everyone who, in a spiritual sense, is dead, this person illustrates being “dead in trespasses and sins (Ephesians 2:1) and therefore of no use to God. Neither he himself nor any others could free him from this condition; not even his mother’s tender love could help him.

There was only One who had the authority to say, “Young man, I say to you, arise!” and indeed, “he who was dead sat up and began to speak”. That was the first thing he did; so it was recognisable that he was alive. This is instructive for us. We are not told what he said. It must have been joyful words. Such words characterise all who have received life in a much more precious form: eternal life.

If any young Christians are reading these lines, let us ask you: “Have you testified that you have obtained new, eternal life?” Don’t hesitate to do so. Such a witness produces joy and may well cause others to want to get to know Jesus Christ, your Lord.

(to be continued tomorrow)

Today‘s reading: 1 Samuel 30: 11 – 31 · Colossians 2: 6 – 15
