Christ is Risen
Sunday, April 20, 2014
The sermon today was awesome. These are the points that the pastor made:
There are 7 reasons that Christians would be most pitied if Christ had not arisen.
1.) We would be without proof that He was God.
2.) No first Fruits of the Resurrection.
3.) Not able to prove that Jesus is God; See the Power of the true God.
4.) Our Salvation depends on resurrection.
5.) Our justification would not be secured
6.) It's the Power of our life in the present. (the Holy Spirit could not have come to enable us to glorify God.)
7.) Christ could not come back as the appointed judge.
Of course he elaborated on each point, but they are good reasons that there was a resurrection.
One thing to remember that when you rise in the morning, think of the resurrection. We rise up out of our bed and that can remind you that not only did Christ die for the believer's sins, but he rose and that is the most important Christian doctrine.
