Christ both died, and rose, and revived

Daily Light Devotions - October 14 - Morning

Christ both died, and rose, and revived ...

For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living. 1 

Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. 2 

Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?" 3 

For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. 4 

Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified." 5 

He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. 6
