Because He Lives –I Can Face Tomorrow

Banner week 3

 

The crux of Christianity hangs on one fact…

The Resurrection of Jesus.

I Corinthians 15:13-17 says:

If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.

And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.

More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God,
for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead.
But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. 

For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.

Wow – do you see the strong words of this passage?

If there is no resurrection of Christ – our faith is useless, our preaching and faith are futile, the dead are not raised, we are false witnesses, and we are still in our sins.

Oh my! That’s serious friends.

But praise the Lord – the angel rolled back the stone and the tomb was empty for all to see!  Then Jesus appeared to over 500 people and then ascended into heaven!  AWESOME!!!!!

Jesus is alive – just as he said!  Our God is not dead – he surely is alive.  And because he is alive – we have the assurance that we too will be resurrected.

Today’s video is about the resurrection of Jesus and of us!  I will answer the question – “what will our heavenly bodies be like”?

Life is hard.  Trials, fears, stress and worries come at us from every side.  Sometimes it is so overwhelming I can’t sleep or I break down in tears…but when morning comes and the sun rises, I am reminded that his mercies are new every morning.

Because He lives – I can face tomorrow.

Week 3 Challenge:

Read Luke 24 –the resurrection account of Jesus.  Stand in AWE!!!

Whatever you are facing today – take it to Jesus. He is alive! He loves you and He wants you to bring all your burdens to Him.

    To meditate on the extent of physical and mental abuses that our Savior was subjected to does make us thankful and grateful for an awesome God of Love!

    I have to share with you ladies the blessing that this study has been so far. My father was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer in January of 2013. We had a great year with him, the chemo treatments did not have the disastrous effects on him that they do on some patients, his side effects were certainly uncomfortable, but tolerable. January of this year marked a turning point however; and now as we approach the Easter season we are facing his return home to our Lord and Savior in Heaven. One of the things that has helped me accept this reality, and take some comfort in is remembering the glory that my father will be experiencing shortly, the healing that he will have will far exceed any progress that chemo therapy could have ever provided. As I battle the frustration that my three children, ages 3 and under will never remember the grandfather, I am reminded how important my role is in teaching them about the Salvation that Jesus Christ made possible through his death, burial, and resurrection. This study has in so many ways provided the reminders of what is to come for every believer, as well as the hope and peace that we have even during the most difficult times in life. God’s timing is perfect, and the timing of this study is no exception!

    • Hi Kirsten,

      I just wanted to let you know that I’m praying for you. I pray that the Lord will lavish His love, comfort, hope, and peace upon you and your family abundantly, and that you will feel His presence near you as you go through this season.

      Love and ((hugs)) from a sister in Christ!
