Easter Monday, April 1: “Victory over Sin” 

1 Corinthians 15: 3: For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures.”


For four thousand years the sin of man had been provisionally dealt with: first through sorrow and pain (Eve), sweat and toil (Adam), exile (Cain), and even destruction (the generation of Noah). Through the Law of Moses there was covering, purging, expiation, and a partial atonement–all of which looked ahead to something better, from a better covenant. Through the death of Jesus Christ we have propitiation for our sins (1 John 2: 2), which means our sins are paid for, they are gone forever, and it is as if they had never happened. Further, through His death and resurrection we can live just as He did, with power over sin (Romans 6: 10-11). As you can see, Christ has acted–with authority–to give us victory over sin!
