We have just celebrated Easter, which in reality is the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Perhaps the greatest New Testament passage dealing with the significance of this event is found in 1 Corinthians 15. Paul writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the church at Corinth, relays to the people the significance and importance of Resurrection. He begins the passage by reminding the church (and us through them) that the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus was pointed to throughout the Old Testament, and does not come to us as a surprise or accident. This hope that we have in Christ gives us perspective as we face an uncertain future. One things we can know with certainty is that, what Christ has done on the cross was sufficient for our sin, and what He did when He rose from the dead, demonstrated the power of His death to those who will believe. What a great God we serve, to provide us hope and perspective as we face the trials of life. Hope comes through the life that Jesus secured for His own, by the resurrection from the dead.
