We typically listen when people of influence make a declaration. Typically a declaration changes the course of events and time. We think of our Declaration of Independence in America. We don’t often read it, but we refer to it when asked. Paul declares our Declaration of Dependence through Jesus Christ so that God may be all in all. We would do well to read, listen, trust, and obey the Word of God.
Like the Apostle Paul, we preach the Gospel.
The Gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, He was buried, and He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
God demonstrated His absolute sovereignty over life and death when He raised Jesus from the dead.
The resurrected Jesus, as eye-witnessed by hundreds people, provides irrefutable proof that He is the Savior of the world.
The resurrection of Christ is fundamental to our Christian faith. We serve a living Savior. Romans 10:9-13
Paul made it clear, if Jesus Christ is not resurrected, then we have no hope, no Savior, no salvation, and no hope of eternal life.
In John 11:25 – Jesus said to Martha, “I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, relies on) Me [as Savior] will live even if he dies; and everyone who lives and believes in Me [as Savior] will never die. Do you believe this?”
Our resurrected Jesus was and is part of God’s ultimate victory plan.
We have hope of eternity and we have the wisdom of God knowing He will be exalted when all things are subject to Jesus. To God be the glory!
