My Death is not Final
Topic: Easter Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:1–15:8, 1 Corinthians 15:12–15:23
Central to the Christian faith is the belief that Jesus proved that he was who he claimed to be by rising from the dead. Without this miracle Jesus is just another false messiah – deluded into believing he was the son of God and foolishly giving his life to save the world. But the resurrection proves that Jesus’ death rescued us all and that his mission to restore God’s creation is accomplished. Best of all, Jesus taught that, because he lives, we shall live also! He is the “first fruits” of all who believe. We too will one day rise again!
