Resurrection Reality

3/31/2024 - 5/19/2024

The Apostle Paul wrote, "Christ has indeed been raised from the dead" (1 Corinthians 15:20). That's a critical word: Indeed! Paul is stressing that we must not think of resurrection like a happy ending to another epic fable. The resurrection is not legend; it really happened. Easter is not just a holiday; it’s history. In the events of this world, Christ’s resurrection is the punctiliar moment that defines reality for us all. If Christ remained dead, he is a fraud and failure. But Christ has indeed been raised!

So, the reality: Jesus is exactly what he claimed to be, the Son of God, our Lord and Savior. If Christ remained dead, then the grave is the final, ugly, rotten end of us all. But Christ has indeed been raised.

Such a resurrection reality does not just change our future, but our entire life now. In this glorious Easter season, we consider the breath-taking implications of the resurrection reality for our life today and every day to come.
