But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised. 1 Corinthians 15:13
Have you ever thought about how different your life might be if Jesus had not been raised from the dead? Paul described the terrible repercussions of such an event and how it would impact every believer. Otherwise, Christianity would be useless. Without the gospel, there would be no need for people to attend church. Anyone who did proclaim the resurrection would be giving a false account. Jesus would be shown to be a liar since He said He would rise again. He would be exactly like any other crucified sinner. Furthermore, it would be difficult to believe anything the Bible said in light of this untruth. Sin would not be forgiven, therefore. Without the resurrection, which served as evidence that God accepted Jesus’ offering, there would be no foundation for God to pardon our sins. Without hope, there would be no afterlife. We would all be condemned to eternal punishment and separation from God rather than being lifted to eternal life in heaven. Understanding the awful alternative frequently results in a greater appreciation of the reality. We have reason to celebrate the fact that Christ has been risen, our faith is genuine, the Bible is accurate, our sins have been covered, and the future resurrection is assured.
Father Lord am grateful to be counted among the souls you called to your kingdom through forgiveness of sin and hope through Christ Jesus. Amen.
