There is Hope!

1 Cor 15:13-14 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.

Would you be a Christian if there was no resurrection?
Is this life enough of a reward or gift from God?

If there is no resurrection then (in my thinking) there would be no heaven or hell. There would be no consequences of your actions – no sin, no condemnation, no reward, and no loss.

Better put, there would be no hope!

What would be the use of telling people about Jesus?
Does this life alone contain enough happiness and joy that it would be more than sufficient without the resurrection of the dead?

The Bible answers that – If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable. 1 Cor 15:19

You would still be subject to the bondage of corruption. (Rom 8:18-21)

Praise God – HE IS RISEN!!

There is hope! There is life! There is joy! There is peace! There is healing! There is eternity!

Abba, Praise Your Holy name for not letting Your Holy One experience the corruption of the grave; but You raised Him up as the firstfruits of the resurrection for us all! YES&AMEN

One thought on “There is Hope!

  1. Now that my spirit as been awakened. cleansed, (brought to life) . I can not understand anyone living without the knowledge of the Savior. I do see where my thinking is so different from that of the world. Simple statements of honoring God is like speaking an unknown tongue. Christ made Him self known to me, it’s a continual thing. My faith, and hope is in a continual state of growing.
