Did Christ Really Rise from the Dead? 4 Confirmations That We Serve a Risen Lord

Did Christ Really Rise from the Dead? 4 Confirmations That We Serve a Risen Lord

Easter is quickly approaching and many of us are turning our thoughts toward the Resurrection of Christ.

Easter is a time to rejoice in such a central tenet of the Christian faith. Easter is also a good time to ponder the truth of Christianity more deeply, and specifically look at the evidence for Christ's Resurrection.

It is so important as a Christian to be assured of the truth of the Resurrection because as the Apostle Paul states, “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (I Corinthians 15:13-14).

To that end, here are four pieces of evidence to show that Christ truly did rise from the dead and we have much to rejoice about this Easter.

Why Did Jesus' Life and Death Have to Happen the Way it Did?

Why Did Jesus' Life and Death Have to Happen the Way it Did?

Christmas proves that the creator and ruler of the universe (Colossians 1:16) is aptly called “Immanuel,” a name which means “God with us” (Matthew 1:23). If you need forgiveness, you can go to your crucified Savior. If you need healing, you can go to your Great Physician. If you are facing temptation, you can go to your sinless High Priest. If your circumstances are difficult, you can go to the manger-born Child of Christmas.
