resurrectionDear Friends of COLLIN CREEK CHURCH,

Timothy J. Keller, “If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn’t rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead.” (The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism1 Corinthians 15:14 (HCSB); “If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is without foundation, and so is your faith.”

J.I. Packer, “Optimism hopes for the best without any guarantee of its arriving and is often no more than whistling in the dark. Christian hope, by contrast, is faith looking ahead to the fulfillment of the promises of God, as when the Anglican burial service inters the corpse ‘in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ.’ Optimism is a wish without warrant; Christian hope is a certainty, guaranteed by God himself. Optimism reflects ignorance as to whether good things will ever actually come. Christian hope expresses knowledge that every day of his life, and every moment beyond it, the believer can say with truth, on the basis of God’s own commitment, that the best is yet to come.”   1 Corinthians 15:20 (HCSB); “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.”

This week let’s all seek to celebrate, live and share the good news of Christ’s resurrection.    TO LEARN MORE: http://collincreekfwbc.podbean.com/.
