Jesus Christ is Alive

Thousands of people go to church on Easter Sunday to hear sermons about the resurrection. But how many actually believe that Christ is alive?

The resurrection is the cornerstone of our faith – our faith is predicated on the belief that Jesus Christ not only died on the cross but that He rose from the dead. The first sermon ever preached at Pentecost was preached by Peter and it was a sermon on ‘The Resurrection’

Acts 2 :22-24 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.”

On the day of the resurrection the angel at the tomb delivered the most important message that has ever fallen on the ears of mankind:

"He is not here; He has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay". Matthew 28:6. (c.f. Mark 16:6, Luke 24:6).

The power of those words changed the course of history, brought hope to a hopeless world and gave men and women a purpose and a power which they had never before known.

We live in a day when science has harnessed the power of the universe. But such power has not made the world better. It has not solved the riddle of human evil; it has not helped us to cope with the problems that threaten the world's peoples.

What relevance has the resurrection of Christ to our human dilemma?

Christ's resurrection can have everything to do with answering our problems. Alive forevermore, the risen Christ can do today what He did for those who received and believed Him in days gone by.

Christ is Risen, He is the Resurrection, He is Alive
