God loves you with all His heart. God loves you with all His soul. God loves you with all His strength. God loves you with all His mind. Let that sink in.
By Christ's resurrection we know that God is alive, God is eternal, and God, therefore, is good. How pleasant, how this comes together. All good is life, and life is all good. You can operate from the cause of right or wrong, but your effects would still be dead. But Christ's finished work is both cause and effect, in that it is Life. Christ is Life, for Good, for Life, for Eternity.
"Christ is our Victor, and we join Him in His procession of victory as those He has saved, new creations, made alive as He is alive."
