Because He Lives
And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins . . . If only in this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.
But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead . . . for since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, SO IN CHRIST ALL WILL BE MADE ALIVE.
Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? (1 Cor. 15:17-22; 55)
Because He lives . . .
