When Jesus went to the cross to pay the price for our sins, it was the greatest event in all of history, but it was surpassed only a couple of days later when He burst forth from the grave! In shedding His blood on the cross, He paid the price; in bursting forth from the grave, He paved our way!
Because of this, we have the hope that just as He arose from death, so shall we.
It’s really just like the picture. Can you see the sun bursting forth from the horizon? Yes, Jesus did just that. In the Bible, the seas, raging, tossing, churning… represents the world in which we live as it tosses, turns and rolls in its futility.
Yes sir, from this raging and crazy world, we shall burst forth toward the heavenly realm because of what Jesus has done for us on the cross!
