On Resurrection Sunday we reach the culmination of Passion Week.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most important event of the Christian faith. The Apostle Paul explained, "... if there is no resurrection ... then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless." (1 Corinthians 15:13-14, NLT)
Today we focus on the empty tomb! It reminds us that we worship a risen Savior as we celebrate the facts of Passion Weekthat Jesus came to earth to love us, he died on the cross to save us, and was buried to take away our sins. Then he rose from the grave forever victorious, as recorded in the Gospels.
Take some time this Easter to consider the profound realities of the resurrection and what Jesus Christ's sacrifice means to you:
