*THE RESURRECTION DAY*
*by C. R. Stam *

In Psalm 2:7 we find the prophetic words: "I will declare the decree:
The Lord hath said unto Me, Thou art My Son: THIS DAY have I begotten
Thee."

Should we ask: "What day?" or "When was Christ officially declared to be
the Son of God?" We will find the answer in Acts 13:33:

"God hath fulfilled the same [promises] unto us... in that He hath
raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second Psalm: Thou
art My Son, this day have I begotten Thee."

So it was at Christ's resurrection that the "decree" was made and He was
"declared" to be the Son of God -- "begotten" in the larger sense of the
word.

This agrees with what we find in the first chapter of Romans, where St.
Paul speaks of God's good news,

"Concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was made of the seed of
David according to the flesh; and declared to be the Son of God with
power... by the resurrection from the dead" (Rom. 1:3,4).

This is a wonderful truth. It was Christ's resurrection from the dead in
power that proved that He was indeed God the Son. And more wonderful
still: it was our death He died at Calvary, so that He might impart to
us this everlasting resurrection life. In Eph. 2:2,3, we are all
declared to have been "the children of disobedience" and therefore "by
nature the children of wrath," but see how this passage continues:

"But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved
us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with
Christ (by grace ye are saved), and hath raised us up together, and made
us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus" (Eph. 2:4-6).

Thus, because of Christ's finished work of salvation, those who place
their trust in Him are given His resurrection life and "bless-ed with
all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ" (Eph. 1:3). This
is their RESURRECTION DAY!
