Hallelujah, Christ Arose!

April 16, 2017

Suppose Jesus Christ had not risen from the dead on that Sunday following His crucifixion. Where would that leave us today? What assurance would we have about anything? Our confidence in life, our thoughts about death, & our hopes about existence after this life would all be drastically affected.

Of course, if you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Savior, His resurrection must seem rather meaningless, as far as you are concerned. People who have not placed faith in Jesus don’t believe He returned to life after dying; they regard Christianity as “just another religion.” But no matter what people choose to believe, it does not change reality – Jesus truly did rise from the dead, & for the believer, that one fact changes everything! And GOD knew that Jesus’ resurrection would raise many questions in many minds; that is why He led Paul to provide us with some answers.
