Jesus “showed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God” (Acts 1:3).

Jesus made an end of sin through His death on the cross and then spend 40 days confirming to the brethren that He had power over the grave. Those brethren that grieved over His death were in an instant renewed and strengthened by His appearing. The sight of the resurrected Christ stirs up joy, hope and peace for the believer. The knowledge of God’s power over the grave gives way to boldness and confidence because there really is nothing that the world can do to you. Our God truly in an awesome God and because He lives we can face tomorrow.
