SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

******************************

1 CORINTHIANS 15:12-19, 29-32

But 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?

If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.

And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.

More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.

For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.

Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.

If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.

Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them?

And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour?

I die every day—I mean that, brothers—just as surely as I glory over you in Christ Jesus our Lord.

If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus for merely human reasons, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised, "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die."

THE MESSAGE

IF CHRIST HAD NOT RISEN FROM THE DEAD : UNDERSTANDING THE IMPORTANCE OF THE RESURRECTION

*************************************************************************************************

1. THERE WOULD BE NO GOSPEL TO PREACH

If Christ had not risen from the dead ,there would no gospel to preach. All our preaching would be useless as we cannot preach the gospel of salvation and healing and deliverance and blessing without a living Christ. A dead Christ cannot help suffering humanity.

But 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?

If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.

And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.

For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.

2. OUR FAITH WOULD BE IN VAIN

If Christ had not risen from the dead , then all our faith would be in vain . There would be no basis for our faith and confidence. We cannot trust in a dead Christ to be with us in our time of trouble to deliver us.
