The Most Powerful Truth

What if the resurrection never occurred? What if Mary and Mary Magdalene had walked up to the tomb and didn’t find the stone rolled away?

Without the resurrection, the disciples never start the church or die in Jesus’ name.  Without the resurrection, Jesus was just another man. Without the resurrection, there would be no Christianity. The resurrection changed the world.

More personally, Jesus’ death and resurrection accomplished three things for every Christian:

  • Forgiveness — We have all sinned. Jesus died on the cross and took the punishment that we deserve. He conquered death to forgive us for our sins.
  • Focus — The disciples went from scared men in hiding to men who boldly professed their faith in Jesus and started the Church! The resurrection gave them and should give us a focus in our lives.
  • Future — Jesus proved that death is not the end! The resurrection gives us hope and a future that is beyond this world.

The resurrection is the most powerful truth, and it’s the basis for our faith.


  • When’s the last time you thanked Jesus for your salvation?
  • How is your future different because Jesus is alive?
  • Think about your life. Where is your focus? Does it need to change?
