10 VITAL TRUTHS CONCERNING THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
The Resurrection of Christ is a fundamental foundation for our faith. If Christ had not risen from the dead , all our faith is in vain and there is no salvation for us.
1 CORINTHIANS 15:1-18 ROMANS 10:9-10 ROMANS 4:24-25
The Resurrection of Christ is the greatest demonstration of the power of God. Satan used all his power to prevent the resurrection . But the power of God proved to be far superior by raising Jesus from the dead. This same resurrection power is working in our lives and thus we too can overcome all the power of the devil.
EPHESIANS 1:15-21 ACTS 5:12-16 ACTS 8:4-8
The Resurrection of Christ gives the purpose for our lives on earth.We should no longer live for ourselves but live for Christ who died and rose again for us. We should strive to reach the mark of the high calling of Christ in our lives.
2 CORINTHIANS 5:14-15 PHILIPPIANS 3:10-14 ROMANS 14:7-9
The Resurrection of Christ calls us to a life of purity and holiness. Just as Jesus died and rose again, we should also die to sin and live for God.
COLOSSIANS 2:12-14 ROMANS 6:3-13 ROMANS 8:8-18
The Resurrection of Christ orders the priority of our pursuits in life. We should seek the things which are above , not the things that are below. When we seek first the Kingdom of God , all our earthly needs will be met.
COLOSSIANS 3:1-25 MATTHEW 6:19-34
The Resurrection of Christ gives us the lively hope to persevere in our faith in God in the midst of trials and tribulations.
2 CORINTHIANS 4:8-18 1 PETER 1:1-25
The Resurrection of Christ must be proclaimed to the world with power in order to lead people to put their faith in Christ. Signs , wonders and miracles when they accompany the preaching of the gospel, convince the unbelievers to believe on Christ.
ACTS 4:33 MARK 16:19-20 ACTS 3:1-26 ACTS 4:1-12
The Resurrection of Christ gives us the privilege of having Christ interceding for us at the right hand of God. We need not fear any accuser because Christ who died and rose again is pleading with God on our behalf.
ROMANS 8:34 HEBREWS 7:25
The Resurrection of Christ is a pattern for the resurrection of every believer who dies in Christ. We should not mourn as others who have no hope because we have the hope of the resurrection at the Second Coming of Christ
1 THESSALONIANS 4:13-18 1 CORINTHIANS 15:19-58
The Resurrection of Christ is a warning to the world of the certainity of the Day of Judgement. Every human being who has ever lived will rise again to face judgement. Therefore we must repent of our sins and turn to God in order to be saved from eternal damnation.
ACTS 17:31 JOHN 5:25-29 REVELATION 20:12-15 DANIEL 12:1-3
