The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

What does Jesus’ resurrection mean to humankind — to you and to me?
God has made it clear, that Christ’s obedience unto death, prepares the way for you and me, as believers to also look forward to being resurrected unto eternal life:
- For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
- The men asked, “Why are you looking in a tomb for someone who is alive? He isn’t here! He has risen from the dead!” Luke 24:5-6
- Our earthly bodies, which die and decay, will be different when they are resurrected, for they will never die. 1 Corinthians 15:42
Christianity would not exist if there was no resurrected Christ. His resurrection gives us the assurance that we also will be resurrected. (1 Thessalonians 4:14-16)
The power of God that brought Jesus back from the dead can bring you back to life after death if you have asked him to forgive your sins. He will give you new life in him as a believer. Jesus’ death was not the end. Instead, his resurrection was the beginning of eternal life for all who believe in him.
There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. (John 14:2-3)
