I Get Excited About the Resurrection

Never Turn Down Ice Cream

April 19th, 2014Posted by Brian

Have you ever thought about the Resurrection of Christ and what it entails?  1 Corinthians 15 gives a beautiful picture.  It’s fantastic!  Paul takes about all the people that saw Christ after His resurrection.  He mentions Cephas (Peter), the disciples, a group of 500 people, James (I believe that he means the brother of Jesus), and Paul himself (15:5-8).  Some question this, but think about it.

Paul was in fact a real person.  That is a generally agreed-upon fact.  So was Peter.  So why do we find it so hard to believe that when they talk about the Resurrection, they’re telling the truth?  A man writes a letter to a church telling them what he saw! People saw Christ!  I know it sounds crazy, but that’s why it’s called faith.

This chapter, for me, is the definitive proof – my spiritual backbone, if you will.  It gives me so much hope.  For me, this chapter validates what I believe:

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. – 1 Corinthians 15:22

Get Excited About the Resurrection

One day we Christians will all be with Christ!  This is awesome!
