Have you ever wondered what the basis of your Christian faith is? What if somebody asks you “How did you know that Jesus Christ is really God?” What will be your answer? Let us find out what is really the foundation of our faith and if the resurrection of Jesus Christ is what makes Him truly God.
The resurrection of Jesus, as described in Wikipedia, is the Christian religious belief that after being put to death, Jesus rose again from the dead. It is the central tenet of Christian theology and part of the Nicene Creed: “On the third day He rose again in accordance with the Scriptures”.
1 Thessalonians 4:14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.
God uses His only begotten son for those who have fallen asleep or those who do not believe that God exists. For those who control their lives as if they are the sole owner of it, for those who lost their faith, for those who are alone and don’t know that there is somebody that can help, and for all of us to know that there is eternal life in heaven with God.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
If there is no resurrection, then our faith is pointless. Imagine – Christianity would only be a physical existence – after we die we will never exist again. If that was the case, then it doesn’t matter what we do, how we live or even what we believe.
Christianity is not just living a physical life; we have a spiritual life that will lead us to live with Him forever.
His resurrection broke the power of death and sin. So think about the resurrection of Jesus when you feel that you’re losing your faith. Rise and remember how Jesus sacrificed His life for us. Always bear in mind that there is a great reward awaiting us, so whatever hardships you’ll experience here on earth is all worth it because God is preparing something wonderful in the afterlife.
