It changes the WHOLE situation...
Up until this point, he was just another prophet, a good man that was crucified.
Up until this point, he was an amazing teacher that changed so many lives through his miracles.
Up until this point.
Then when the women ran back to tell the others that the tomb was empty... it all changed!
Wait... stop the mourning. Stop the crying.
It has happened just as He said - but yet the guards state the body was stolen.
Who will you believe?
As it was then, it is now... what will you believe?
Your life here, and more importantly your life with you last exhale, depends on it.
The apostle Paul stated:
“If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” 1 Corinthians 15:14
So who cares about it all?
What difference does it make - what's it to me?
Why do you & I need to understand what it all means?
The promise of resurrection wasn’t only His assurance that Jesus would rise from the dead but His bold affirmation that other dead and ruined things (your life & mine) could also one day be brought back to life - an eternal life, through Christ.
No resurrection, no hope.
Paul knew that it would be all lost. No resurrection - death wins.
But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead. Destroyed by His ultimate sacrifice on the cross for payment of our sin. Death loses. Jesus has given us victory over death if, yes IF, we come to Him for cleansing and new life in Christ.
NEW life. . . sound amazing?
It is - in this world you will still face trials and heartache.
BUT - hope and comfort live within you, so you can live with boldness and no fear.
Now THIS changes everything!
