I often ask myself how it is even possible that men should doubt the resurrection from the dead. It is far more incredible that there should be no resurrection. The question of Paul to King Agrippa was, Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead? If there is no resurrection, this life really has no meaning, it becomes hollow and empty. Then God Who created us is a God of sheer sorrow...is this life all there is? Just a few years of alternating between crying and laughing, mostly crying, and then death? Then we must say with the Apostle Paul, If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. But the resurrection should not be incredible to us, for all things around us remind us of the resurrection. The buds on the trees, the flowers in the garden, the emerging of life after a long winter of inactivity, all point to the resurrection.
In an ancient tomb in
Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes;
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever with His saints to reign:
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah, Christ arose!
Amen and amen! And because He lives, I too can and will live for eternity. So can you by believing that Jesus is the Christ, your Savior.
✞ Believe in the resurrection (Romans 10:9-10).
