What resurrection is to a Christian is more than what oxygen is to life. No Christianity or new birth without the resurrection of Christ (1 Peter 1:3). People who breathe oxygen and have not yet experienced the new birth brought about by the resurrection of Christ are dead even though they live. In other words, of what use is oxygen to unregenerated man if he is still in his sin? “ . We know that we have passed from death to life because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death.” (1 John 3:14) It is obvious that we cannot love outside Christ. And when we love in Christ, we have passed from death to life. Jesus did not only resurrect, but He is also the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in Him will live, even though they die and whoever lives by believing in him will never die (John 11:25-26). Death came through Adam while the resurrection of the dead comes through Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:21). In 1 Corinthians 15:17, the Bible says if Christ has not been raised, our faith is futile, and we are still in our sins. Praise be to God that Christ was resurrected after three days by the glory of the father (1 Corinthians 15:4, Romans 6:4,). No wonder Apostle Paul was striving to know the power of His resurrection (Philippians 3:10). It is worth knowing brethren. The month of April is declared to be:
‘OUR MONTH OF RESURRECTION’.
1 Peter 1:3, 1 John 3:14, 11:25-26, 1 Corinthians 15:4, 17, 21, Romans 6:4, Philippians 3:10, Luke 24:1-6.
Brethren, the tomb is empty, Jesus is risen, he is no longer in the grave, your sins are forgiven, you have been justified by His resurrection. What a new life in Christ the resurrection and the life! Our faith is not futile, and we are no longer in our sins. Hallelujah and glory to God forever!
