Is it possible to like a Hershey’s candy bar and not like chocolate?  Is it possible to eat a cheeseburger without cheese?  Sure, you can order a cheeseburger without cheese, but then it is not really a cheeseburger, it is just a hamburger.  Christianity without the resurrection of Jesus Christ is worse than a cheeseburger without cheese, because without the resurrection of Christ it is not even Christianity.

The Apostle Paul actually gave us the definition of the gospel message (the good news of how Jesus paid for our sins).  That definition is found in I Corinthians 15:1-4:  “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;  By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”

Sin is a serious problem, but Jesus paid for our sins when He died on the cross.  He did not stay dead though.  He rose form the dead after He paid for your sins and mine.  The good news of the gospel is that if you believe that Jesus alone paid for your sins when He died and that He rose from the dead, then you are saved.  On the other hand, if you do not believe that, then God’s wrath still abides on you because of your sin and you are not saved.  “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”  (John 3:36)

By believing in the resurrection, we are believing that Jesus rose from the dead and that we too will rise from the dead to live forever with Him.  Consider the promise of eternal life that comes with belief in the Lord Jesus Christ.  “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:15-16)

Our sins have already condemned us, but Jesus came to save us when He died and rose from the dead.  “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” (John 3:17-19)

By believing in Christ, we are given eternal life- we will be made alive forever after we are resurrected.  The reason people die is because of sin and that sin started back in the garden of Eden with the first man Adam.  “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” (1 Corinthians 15:20-22)

As you remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ, realize that His death and resurrection make possible your resurrection to eternal life after you die if you believe in Him alone to save you from your sins..
