“Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed.”
This is just one account of Jesus’ resurrection. This is the turning point in our Christian faith that sets us apart from other religions. Jesus didn’t only die a gruesome and necessary death on the cross, but He showed that He was the One and only God by resurrecting on the third day. The disciple mentioned in this verse was an eyewitness to this. It is a precious thing that Jesus inspired John to write these words to us. He wanted us to have these accounts to strengthen and solidify our faith in Him.
Knowing that we are loved by a God who humbled himself and died for our sins is more meaningful than anything we can ever imagine. The fact that He not only wanted us to know that but went even further to provide proof for us who weren’t able to physically see, is icing on the cake. We serve such a merciful and gracious God, friends! Remember that today!
