“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57)
Today’s Scripture reading is 1 Corinthians 15:12-58
Easter Sunday! Christ is risen! Join us this morning at 10:30 am for our Resurrection Sunday Celebration!
But, what if they found the corpse of Christ in the tomb? God forbid! But, what if? Paul lays out the unimaginable answer in 1 Corinthians 15:13-14. Our faith would be futile. There would be no point in any of our teaching. It would all be a lie. If Christ is dead, our loved ones remain in the grave. We would be wasting our time and our life for nothing. We would be just wandering around in the dark, hanging onto a few words of inspiration for a few short years.
Now, are you ready for Paul’s answer? “But in fact, CHRIST HAS BEEN RAISED FROM THE DEAD!” (1 Corinthians 15:20). What glorious words! Our faith is not empty. It is all true. Those who are in Christ by faith will never die. The curtain is torn! Nothing separates us from eternal life with God! Jesus is risen! Today, on this glorious Easter Sunday, take some time to praise your risen Savior!
Prayer: “Jesus, torn from the Father, now forever reunited at the throne, I praise and thank you for the courage you give me today and in my life…”
