Why Is The Resurrection Of Jesus Important?
The Historical Resurrection Of Jesus. Jesus' resurrection is many times thought of in abstract terms or just treated as a form of a holiday with the celebration of Easter each year. In reality it is the most important historical event that has ever occurred in the world. This unique historical event consisted of Jesus, in human form, dying on the cross and then three days later being resurrected from the dead to live forever. As Jesus was in human form, His resurrection proved that man can have complete victory over death and live forever in their glorified body. Other people were resurrected from the dead, but later died at the end of their natural life. Jesus only died once and then was resurrected forever (Romans 6:9).
Faith In The Jesus' Resurrection. A key part of Christian faith is the belief in the actual resurrection of Jesus. A resurrection where Jesus was in human form and he was brought back from death to live forever. Jesus' resurrection proves to us in no certain terms that God has complete power over death. If you believe that Jesus' resurrection actually occurred, then it follows that you believe that all humans can have victory over death. If you believe in Jesus, you can have internal life (John 11:25). Christians with assurance can place their faith and hope in God above all else because of the Jesus' resurrection (1Peter 1:21).
The Resurrection Spirit. The Bible says that we can have the same spirit in us as the Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 8:11). This is another assurance for Christians that explicitly tells us that we will have eternal life as we will go through the same resurrection as Jesus Christ. The spirit of God that is in all Christians will defeat death. This resurrection will happen just like the resurrection of Jesus when the spirit of God in Him defeated death. On Judgement Day, all believers will receive their glorified body and live forever.
Scriptures Concerning The Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Romans 6:9, Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
John 11:25, Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
1 Peter 1:21, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
Romans 8:11, But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
