In our little church we have felt the sting of death several times in the last month. Death robs us of the person we love here on earth. Death has always been humanity’s greatest unknown and thus man’s greatest fear. We tend to fear what we don’t understand and can’t control. Religions have made attempts through the centuries to unravel the mystery of death. But no explanation of death satisfies reason and intellect, and gives hope to the heart, like the Christian explanation. Very simply, Jesus Christ defeated death by returning to life. Had the resurrection not happened, we Christians would look foolish with our Gospel of eternal life (1 Corinthians 15:14, 18). But the resurrection did happen! Death has been defeated! And we Christians, in Christ, have been given the victory (1 Corinthians 15:57). The resurrection of Christ is the most important article of our faith.
