Title: The Risen One
Author: Randy Tomko
This world offers us nothing, but Christ offers us EVERYTHING! He has the authority do so!
Because He’s the one person in all of time and space, in all of history who went to the edge of the world, went over into the pit of darkness and came back to tell us all that there’s a place beyond belief for you and for me!
17 And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. 18 In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost! 19 And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.
20 But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died.
21 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man.22 Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.
1 Corinthians 15: 17-22 (NLT)
