1 Corinthians 15:17 – If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. (NIV 1978)
My Musings – The resurrection is essential to the Christian faith. If Christ was not victorious over death, then we certainly cannot be either. But He was and we are.
My Advice – Many people will try to water down the Gospel by saying Jesus is not really God in the flesh, He is not the only means of salvation or that He really was not raised from the dead. Do not believe them. All these are essential to your faith and hope in life eternal.
