“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live” (John 11:25 NKJV).
We all know that death is coming, but what happens beyond the grave? According to the Bible, there is life beyond the grave. And because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross, and because He rose from the dead three days later, we as Christians have the hope that when we die, we will immediately go into the presence of God into a wonderful place called heaven.
That is why the resurrection of Jesus from the dead is one of the most important biblical truths there is. The resurrection of Christ from the dead, next to the crucifixion itself, is the most significant event in church history. It is not a peripheral issue. It is foundational. It is bedrock. It is the bottom line.
P.S.- To celebrate the foundational truth of the resurrection and the eternal life that is available, we want to offer a free music download about this topic. It’s called “God So Loved,” as performed by the Harvest Worship Band on their Praiseworthy album. Click here to download this song and enjoy it all season long, in anticipation of Easter.
