Risen - 1 Corinthians 15:1-22

As horrific as the death of Jesus was, the resurrection of Jesus was exactly the opposite - it was glorious.  On that Sunday morning Jesus burst forth from the tomb leaving it empty of its power: no more did death have power, no more did sin have power and no more did hell have power.  All of those powerful enemies had been defeated by the power of Jesus' resurrection.  We read in verse 22 that the same power that was in Jesus to defeat death would now be in us as His followers.  Yes, you and I can be assured an eternal life with Christ.  We can follow Him in this life and rise above sin.  We can follow Him after this life and rise above death.  Are you following Him now?  Are you trusting in the hope that comes from His resurrection?
