THE IMPORTANCE OF THE RESURRECTION (1 Cor. 15:12-19)

November 6, 2011

 This lesson is on the importance of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  There is no middle ground on this subject.  This is not an issue that as believers we can equivocate on and try to be politically correct so as not to offend anyone.  We cannot say things like "Well, we can't be sure about the Resurrection, so let's not say too much about it." 

This fact is so important that we must take our stand.  We stand on a foundation; that foundation is the Rock, and the Rock is Christ.  He came back from the dead.   

Christianity rises and falls on that Rock. 

If Christ did not rise, then our faith is in vain.  Our sins and our iniquities cling to us still.  Hell has triumphed.  Death has won.  Satan was victorious.  The curse remains.  Judgment for all looms.  Our faith is folly. 

Listen and glorify God as Paul confronts this issue head on.  Christ did rise and He lives today.  Rejoice as Paul describes in this verse-by-verse study of 1 Cor. 15:12-19 what the Resurrection means to you and I.
