Christ is Risen

Christ is Risen by Matt Maher is my anthem this Easter & here is one of my favorite passages of Scripture to think through with it…

1 Corinthians 15:3For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…

12But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith…

17And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. 19If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men…

55“Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?” 56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. It is because Christ is risen that I have hope! I could not imagine living life with its challenges and joys without my Saviour! He is Risen, Praise The Lord! It is that same hope that gives me confidence to pray for your family.
    Shalom in Christ,

  2. Thank you for sharing. First time I’ve seen. Beautiful song. I’m so glad Kate is doing well there & God is pouring out his grace, mercy, healing and love ~ on all of you. Just such an encouragement. Jesus is ALIVE & he lives in and through us. Especially the hope in Kate is so evident & also, Wil & Oliva are such troopers! wow. Holly too. Keep shinning as trophies of his grace. He will ‘Come Down’. Light of heaven, Jesus… our blessed Messiah, Redeemer, kinsman, Lord, Savior & King!
