But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? (1 Corinthians 15:12)
If the resurrection isn’t true, what difference would it make? If Christ hasn’t been raised from the dead, why do say that he did? If we don’t believe in the resurrection, does it really matter?
I hope that this email is useful, and that you are able to spend a few minutes at noon each day, as we pray together as a church family. Please do keep sending your prayer suggestions to me, so that we can make sure we are praying around the needs, burdens and encouragements of our whole church family.
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
We’re spending a few weeks in Easter looking at the resurrection of Jesus. Is it true? Why does it matter? What does it mean for us today?
