Sermons on Resurrection
In 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 Paul emphasizes that the death and resurrection of Christ happened historically according to the Scriptures. This resurrection is absolutely foundational to salvation such that without the resurrection of Christ no one can be saved. Pastor Grasso here explains the historical witness to the resurrection and the way in which it was attested in Scripture before the coming of Christ.
How is Christ’s resurrection related to your salvation? In Ephesians 2:1-10 Paul explains that you are dead in your sins but God made you alive together with Christ. Salvation is resurrection and not just any resurrection but it is union with Christ such that His resurrection becomes yours. For the believer the spiritual life you have is the life of the resurrected life of Christ. “He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.” – Matthew 28:6
