Why is the Resurrection of Jesus such an important event?

  • It proved that He is who He says He is.  He was “…shown to be the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 1:4).
  • Jesus came to die on the cross as an offering for our sin – the innocent for the guilty.
  • If He had not lived a perfect and sinless life, His offering would not have been acceptable to God.  He would have had to die for His sins instead of ours.
  • The Resurrection proves God accepted His sacrifice on our behalf! 
    • He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God. (Romans 4:25, NLT)
  • By His death on the cross, our sins can be forgiven, and we can know God personally and receive eternal life.  We find the missing component of our lives!
