9-10 AM SUNDAY, APR 24 IN ROOM 2 • LED BY REV IVO MEILANDS
The death of Jesus on the cross for you is central to your Christian life, and it is central to a larger story, one that includes the resurrection. Without the resurrection of Jesus, the cross would be meaningless because without the resurrection, there would be no Messiah, no eternal life, no heaven, and no hope.
The apostle Paul wrote, “If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (1 Corinthians 15:14). Either Jesus did or did not rise from the dead. If Christ did not rise from the dead, Christianity is an interesting museum piece and nothing more. If he did, however, it was the most sensational event of all of history.
