Easter makes no sense for those who do not believe in Jesus Christ. You cannot prove scientifically Jesus rose from the dead. No one has ever done it before. When Jesus rose from the dead 100’s of others did so too at a cemeteries nearby. Then, if you are from another religion, the idea of an all-powerful God being hurt, cut, nailed, and dying by human hands is paradoxical.
Yet Paul writes, “If Christ had not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.” 1 Corinthians 15:17
There is a lot of talk seeking to reduce Jesus to being a teacher of good works. The insidiousness of this talk is that it is true, Jesus did tell us to be a light of the world and to let our good works give glory to God; but to limit Jesus to that teaching would be unfair to the Biblical account. The resurrection says Jesus is so much more than a good teacher.
The reason the church lives today is because Jesus lives today. The reason you have life in Christ is because Jesus is alive. The reason we do good works is because we have a living Savior that has done a good work in us!
Easter makes all the difference
