The resurrection of Jesus Christ has many benefits for the world.
The first benefit is that it shows the immense power of God Himself and gives us hope in the face of death.
Christians who trust in the resurrected Jesus are given new life, immortality and everlasting hope!
We are changed from enemies of God and destined for hell to children of God and heirs of Heaven.
This new life comes from the work of God’s Holy Spirit in believers.
A third benefit of the resurrection is that it proves our faith in God’s holiness and divine nature.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, Christ is able to make believers perfect in His image and likeness (Romans 8:29). This means that we can know God’s love for us, and live lives of purity and holiness as we follow Jesus.
Another benefit of the resurrection is that it validates who Jesus is and what He came to do.
Jesus was a prophet, and His resurrection was the evidence that He had the special authority to speak on behalf of God.
The resurrection of Jesus was the final piece of evidence that Jesus was the Son of God and the Messiah, which is why Paul described it as a “sign from heaven” in Romans 1:4.
We can be sure of our own future resurrection because of Christ’s past resurrection.
