Powerful Life Lessons from the Aftermath of the Resurrection #8

TEXT: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Today, millions of people around the globe acknowledge and remember the life and death of the most incredible Man who ever walked on Earth -- Jesus Christ. Yet, this man is remembered not just for what He did during His life, but for what He did after His death. Very simply, He rose from the dead. Without the resurrection, Jesus Christ very likely would have faded into the pages of history -- chalked up as just another zealous Jew who failed in His attempt to upset the established religious order and overthrow Roman oppression.
Yet, the resurrection did happen. And today the luminous figure that is Jesus Christ reigns supreme as the most important, the most controversial, and the most beloved Person who ever lived. Carnegie Simpson said, "Instinctively we do not class Him with others. When one reads His name in a list beginning with Confucius and ending with Goethe we feel it is an offense less against orthodoxy than against decency. Jesus is not one of the group of the world's great. Talk about Alexander the Great and Charles the Great and Napoleon the Great if you will…Jesus is apart. He is not the Great; He is the Only. He is simply Jesus….He confounds our canons of human nature." You may not care for Christians and you may not like the church, but no one can deny the impact that Jesus Christ has on the world. His followers took a fledgling movement and caused it to explode into a worldwide phenomenon. It has endured through violent persecution, intellectual assault, and systematic attempts to stamp it out.
On this Easter Sunday, I want to talk about the root of the Christian message -- the Gospel -- and what it is that makes this message so powerful, so resilient, and so unstoppable.
