The foundation of our faith.



This week in our Christian Faith, we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. More than two thousand years ago, Jesus was crucified and hung on a cross between the two thieves. He was then buried and placed in a tomb. Three days later, there was an earthquake, and an angel of the Lord came down from Heaven and rolled back the stone. When Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to the tomb, they discovered that the tomb was empty. “The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” (Matthew 28:5-6)

He is Risen

He is Risen! He is Risen! While many people at that time could not believe the news that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, but Jesus had already told his disciples that he was going to be captured by men who would kill him but after three days, he will rise from the dead. I guess they did not understand what he was saying because if they did, they would not have been surprised that his tomb was empty.

Thank God Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Because he rose again, we have victory over death. 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 states that “O[a] Death, where is your sting? 56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The foundation of our faith

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is a basis for the foundation of our faith. Unlike other religions, their Savior died but never got up. In the Christian faith, Jesus died but rose again. He is very much alive. Even though one day we will die, but we will rise again and if you are a Christian, you will live with Jesus in Heaven forever.

If Christ did not rise from the dead, then we would be dead to sin. 1 Corinthians 15:17 said that “And if Chrisy has not been raised, your faith is futile, you are still in your sins.” Therefore, we all have an opportunity to be forgiven for our sins. Can you imagine what would have happened to us if Christ did not rise from dead?

His resurrection authenticates our faith. He said he would die and rise again, and he did rise again. This should increase our faith and give us hope and confirmation that God is real and there is life after death. It also confirmed what was Jesus had told his disciples about him rising again. It proves that God does not lie and his word is true.


I know around this time, there is a lot of celebration around this time involving easter eggs and two days of holiday (Good Friday and Easter Monday), the celebration should be about the hope and the opportunity that God has provided to us because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Therefore, I encourage the Church to continue to celebrate and teach about crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Do not get caught up in the worldly stuff and do not focus on what day Jesus die and what day he rose. The fact is, he died, and he rose again.
