Utterly supreme over everything, everywhere.
Celebrating the Resurrection in Payson, Arizona
I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me–that Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and He was raised from the dead on the third day, also as the Scriptures said. He was seen by Peter and by the twelve apostles. After that, He was seen by more than 500 of His followers, at one time, most of whom (when this was written) were still alive, though obviously they are all dead now. Then He was seen by James and then later He was seen again by all the apostles. Last of all, I saw Him too…
Paul the Apostle (1Corinthians 15:3-8)
The Apostle’s point? No way this deal was faked!
What difference does the Resurrection make? Why do we celebrate the Resurrection? It is the one event in all of history that secures our eternal present and assures our eternal future while at the same time securing the eternal present and future of the unshakable Kingdom.
Then when He has conquered all things, the Son will present Himself to God, so that God, Who gave His Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything, everywhere.
Paul (1Corinthians 15:28
The Resurrection is our assurance that there is no stopping the advancement of the Kingdom nor the day when every knee will bow…
So what do we have to worry about?
Have a blessed celebration of this monumental Resurrection Day!
