“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:3-4).
We serve a risen Lord and Savior. This King of Kings and Lord of Lords lives forevermore. He is the eternal God.
“I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).
Praise the Lord that no grave can hold down Jesus. “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,” as the hymn says.
“And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain” (I Corinthians 15:14).
