Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:17 that if Christ has not been raised our faith is futile and we are still in our sins. In other words, Paul is pinning every Christian’s hopes on the resurrection of Christ. Because Jesus rose, we will rise. Because Jesus got up from the grave and has defeated death and sin, we can be confident that he will return as he promised to finally and fully consummate his reign on earth.
Take some time to read the text, 1 Thessalonians 4:9–18, a few times before Sunday. Looking forward to seeing you all!
Grace and peace,
