The apostle Paul wrote, “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:17). In other words, the resurrection power of Jesus frees believers from every bondage, sickness, and sin.
Salvation requires not only repentance, but actually believing this about Jesus. This is more than a historical belief that Jesus rose from the dead. Instead, it is an application of Christ’s death and resurrection to myself. Because Jesus rose from the dead, I have present, complete victory over all sin. Because of Christ’s resurrection, I am free to never sin again.
Let Jesus’ example of raising Lazarus from the dead encourage you to believe Jesus to break every sin, sickness, guilt, and bondage in your life–for good!
