JOIN US EASTER SUNDAY!
Be sure to join us tomorrow morning at 10:15 am on livestream at www.rhccs.org or the RHC app as we celebrate the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST. The title of the message is "The Hope of the Resurrection" and the text is I Corinthians 15.
Dr. Adrian Rogers said, “The resurrection is not merely important to the historic Christian faith; without it, there would be no Christianity. It is the singular doctrine that elevates Christianity above all other world religions.”
Dr. John MacArthur declared, “The truth of the resurrection gives life to every other area of gospel truth. The resurrection is the pivot on which all of Christianity turns and without which none of the other truths would much matter. Without the resurrection, Christianity would be so much wishful thinking, taking its place alongside all other human philosophy and religious speculation.”
In his personal testimony, Lee Strobel stated, “In short, I didn’t become a Christian because God promised I would have an even happier life than I had as an atheist. He never promised any such thing. Indeed, following him would inevitably bring divine demotions in the eyes of the world. Rather, I became a Christian because the evidence was so compelling that Jesus really is the one-and-only Son of God who proved his divinity by rising from the dead. That meant following him was the most rational and logical step I could possibly take."
Theologian N.T. Wright wrote, “The resurrection completes the inauguration of God’s kingdom. . . . It is the decisive event demonstrating that God’s kingdom really has been launched on earth as it is in heaven. The message of Easter is that God’s new world has been unveiled in Jesus Christ and that you’re now invited to belong to it.”
In First Corinthians 15: 3-4, the apostle Paul writes, “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scripture.”
I praise our great GOD for those glorious words, "He is not here. He is risen!" Hallelujah, what a Savior!
