Key Words: And if Christ be not raised
There were some in the church at Corinth that did not believe in the resurrection of the dead. So Paul in I Corinthians 15 is reminding them of the supreme importance of the resurrection.
He says in verse 19, “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
Paul says in Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
The resurrection is of supreme importance and it is the cornerstone of our Christian faith.
A little lad was gazing intently at the picture in the art store window: the store was displaying a notable picture of the crucifixion. A gentleman approached, stopped, and looked. The boy, seeing his interest, said, “That’s Jesus.” The man made no reply, and the lad continued, “Them’s Roman soldiers.” And, after a moment, “They killed Him.”
“Where did you learn that?” asked the man. “In the Mission Sunday School,” was the reply.
The man turned and walked thoughtfully away. He had not gone far when he heard a youthful voice calling, “Say, Mister,” and quickly the little street lad caught up with him. “Say, Mister,” he repeated, “I wanted to tell you that He rose again.”
And so He did! And because He lives, we can live as well!
