The Day That Changed the World!
He is risen! He is risen indeed! The Time is NOW to celebrate the most amazing event in human history: the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead!
Jesus’ resurrection is central to our faith. In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul tells us, And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins . . . If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. The glorious reality that we celebrate is this, But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
Jesus puts Christianity in a completely other category. The Christian story is about what God has done from His side. It’s about God’s search and rescue mission. It’s about God’s restoration of our broken relationship. This truth is too good to keep to ourselves.
It was this truth that compelled those early disciples – and every true disciple since – to go to every corner of the earth with the Gospel. The Time is NOW for you, too!
