  6. Consider the Alternative…“If Jesus was not raised from the dead…” But tell me this—since we preach that Christ rose from the dead, why are some of you saying there will be no resurrection of the dead? For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless. And we apostles would all be lying about God—for we have said that God raised Christ from the grave. But that can’t be true if there is no resurrection of the dead. 1 Corinthians 15:12-19

  7. Consider the Alternative…“If Jesus was not raised from the dead…” And if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost! And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world. 1 Corinthians 15:12-19

  16. Resurrection: Why Necessary?

  17. Resurrection: Why Necessary? But there is an order to this resurrection: Christ was raised as the first of the harvest; then all who belong to Christ will be raised when he comes back. After that the end will come, when he will turn the Kingdom over to God the Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power. For Christ must reign until he humbles all his enemies beneath his feet. And the last enemy to be destroyed is death. 1 Corinthians 15:23-26

  21. The “Two Races”

  22. Everyone “In Christ” • A “Resurrection Life People” • A Culture of Joy and Thankfulness! • “Rejoice in the Lord always! Again, I say rejoice!” Phil. 4:5 • Full of life: the presence of the Holy Spirit. • A reservoir of God’s love pouring out • “I please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit…” 1 Cor. 10:33 • “Let your gentle spirit be made known to all men. The Lord is near!” Phil.4:1
