I’ll never get over the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s not a myth. It’s not an old Bible story. IT IS FACT. It is the pivotal moment in all of Scripture. In fact, it’s the defining moment of the Christian faith. Paul spends the entire 15th chapter talking about the resurrection of Christ and it’s impact on our faith.
He says, “…if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” (1 Cor. 15:14) The resurrection is vital to our faith and salvation. Gratefully we know that He was raised. Paul goes on to say in verse 20-22, “but Christ has indeed been raised from the dead…so in Christ all will be made alive.”
Last night at camp I saw first hand the lasting impact of that resurrection. Because of Jesus, many teenagers stepped from death to life on June 20, 2019. Over two thousand years later, our Savior’s love is still just as alive and well as it was when Paul wrote to the church at Corinth.
