The Hope of the Resurrection

Good news, Sisters! We are not without hope, for we worship,adore, and glorify a Risen Savior!

As I ponder the Gospel message, I am reminded of how it is explained in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 which states:

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”

What a beautiful Gospel, but can you imagine if there was no resurrection? The apostle Paul, also in 1 Corinthians chapter 15, tells us what our hopeless condition would be without the resurrection: our faith is in vain, we would be false witnesses of God, our faith is worthless, we are still in our sins, those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished, and we are to be greatly pitied.

But Christ Jesus is alive! We have overcome the world by our faith, we are true witnesses of God, those who have fallen asleep in Christ and those of us still alive will one day forever be with the Lord, and our sins have been forgiven!!!

Celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, and because the tomb is empty, we have the hope of eternal life!
