Pulpit Notes: Easter, the Most Important Event in History

Christ is risen! Alleluia!

One of the most common beliefs of the Christian faith is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ that we celebrated on Easter Sunday. We believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. This is, in my opinion, the most important doctrine of the Christian faith because everything else that we believe as Christians depends upon it. Paul spoke to this when he wrote to the church in Corinth:

“And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.”  (1 Corinthians 15:14).

God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. For Christians, the Resurrection is the one and only event in all of history that can give meaning and purpose to all the rest. We have hope for life abundant and eternal. Even though you may have made your profession of faith years ago, consider reaffirming it today. Christ lives, and because He does, we can, too!

Soli Deo Gloria,
