In 1 Corinthians 15:17, Paul wrote,
“…and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.”
Dare I ask: How important is the resurrection of Christ?
I declare: How important is the resurrection of Christ!
Consider this words at the beginning of Ephesians, chapter two.
2 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. 3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
Due to the imputation of Adam’s sin, every human being is born sinful. Our choice to sin at a very young age, only confirms the constitution of our nature. And that is why we all need resurrection. And that is why Jesus rose from the dead.
If you are in your sins today, you are either not celebrating or you are not celebrating correctly.
If you are no longer in your sins, today is a great day celebrating the historical realities described in the Bible and the profound implications in our lives each and every day!
