- "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." (1 Peter 1:3-5)
- "And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty" (1 Cor 15:14).
- "And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!" (1 Cor 15:17).
If it wasn't for the resurrection then my faith would be completely pointless and I would still be in bondage to my sin. Also, I wouldn't have hope for a future resurrection and I would be following a false Messiah. Think about 1 Peter 1:3. Because of the resurrection we have been born again. Amen!
