“Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised” (1 Corinthians 15:15-16)
We believe and confess the resurrection of the dead. In the face of what so-called moderns often deny, it is an essential part of the faith. It all hinges on Christ being the only Begotten Son, died, buried, and resurrected. If Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too shall be raised. This is the hope given us through the resurrection. Christ has been raised from the dead!
Lord, help me to see through the fog of this generation which does all it can to discredit the greatest thing that has happened in history. Help me to see that we do not have a faith built on fables, but facts. Help me to know that because Christ lives, I too shall live. Like Job, help me to hope in the declaration that even after my skin has been destroyed, I myself shall live and see my Redeemer.
Lord Jesus, though the world calls you a fable, You have come and revealed Your glory to one as lowly as me. Help me to simply follow You all the days of my life here until that day when I stand before You face to face. Guide me in hope and wisdom that I may not be unbelieving, but believing, doing those things You give me to do. May my life become all that You intend through Your grace. Amen.
