Romans 8:11: But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
The followers of Jesus were very disappointed when it was known that Jesus was not in the tomb. The disciples were in hiding for fear that the crowd would come after them and kill them, so they didn’t go looking for Him, only to the tomb to verify that He was not there. The same faith and strength that we all have because of our faith, left them.
They did not know that God had better things in store for them. God’s plan was for the grave to be empty so the hearts and lives of all who decide to be followers of Jesus would be full of Him and all that God has promised us. God’s love along with all the other fruits of the spirit is in us. Here are some verses that tell us of all that we can have:
Colossians 2:10 NKJV: and you are complete in Him…
Colossians 1:27 NKJV: …Christ in you, the hope of glory.
2 Corinthians 1:20 NKJV: For all the promises of God in Him [are] Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.
There are many more verses that tell us of all that we have when we live In the Spirit and let the Spirit live in us. This is one of the reasons why the tomb is empty today.
