The subject of resurrection is very important to Christian faith; more light was shed on this as it is written, “Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up—if in fact the dead do not rise. For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable” (1 Corinthians 15:12-19).
Resurrection is the most crucial subject of Christianity. The religion would be irrelevant if the resurrection story of Jesus Christ is not inclusive. However, since Jesus Christ actually died and resurrected, Christianity becomes a life saving religion, and it also becomes the pinnacle of life assurance after death for all people. People who believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ will wake up after earthly death to meet with God in heaven. Meanwhile, the skeptics will be unable to meet God in heaven. They will be disallowed to enter heaven, but their places would be in hell fire. Therefore, all people are encouraged to believe that Jesus Christ died and resurrected; everyone must confess him as his/her Lord and personal Savior.
Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that it is very important that I declare my faith in you; I must believe that you died for my sins and resurrected to give me life. Therefore, I affirmatively declare that I believe you died and resurrected for my sins; I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. From now on, I will serve you with a clean and clear mind, and I will also share your resurrection story with other people so that they can believe and be saved also. Please give me grace to remain faithful to you throughout the days of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
