The Resurrection: What Difference Does It Make?
Here we go again – coloring eggs, giving Easter baskets, planning for brunch and dressing up for church to hear the pastor talk about Jesus rising from the dead. It’s usually a nice day when family and friends get to see each other and visit. But why do we do it? Isn’t it really just another Sunday? Isn’t it just another Bible story? What difference does the resurrection of Jesus make anyway? If you think about it, the claim that a dead person came back to life after three days is just plain nonsense. But Jesus was no ordinary person – He was God in the flesh. Believing in the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the foundational claim of Christianity…and it can make an incredible difference in the lives of all those who accept it. How about you?
