1 Corinthians 15:11-14 So then it is not important if I told you God’s message or if it was the other apostles who told you—we all tell people the same message, and this is what you believed. We tell everyone that Christ was raised from death. So why do some of you say that people will not be raised from death? If no one will ever be raised from death, then Christ has never been raised. And if Christ has never been raised, then the message we tell is worth nothing. And your faith is worth nothing.

Down through the centuries, the resurrection of Jesus – was it real or was it not? – has been fiercely debated. And these days many still write it off as a myth. I mean, really … resurrection from the dead? Come on!

And you know, there are a good many people today who call themselves Christians, who either don’t believe in the physical resurrection of Jesus, or who find it so foreign, so far outside what seems possible, so other-worldly … that they at best push it to one side (I don’t really want to think about that) and at worst, disbelieve it completely.

But there’s nothing new in that. In fact, it all started not long after Jesus walked this earth, was crucified, and rose again. Here’s the Apostle Paul writing about that very thing:

1 Corinthians 15:11-14 So then it is not important if I told you God’s message or if it was the other apostles who told you—we all tell people the same message, and this is what you believed. We tell everyone that Christ was raised from death. So why do some of you say that people will not be raised from death? If no one will ever be raised from death, then Christ has never been raised. And if Christ has never been raised, then the message we tell is worth nothing. And your faith is worth nothing.

That’s pretty blunt. If Jesus wasn’t raised from the dead, then neither will you or I, or anyone else who trusts Him, receive His promise of eternal life.

The resurrection of Jesus is something that you can’t brush aside, unless of course you want to give up your eternal life at the same time.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
