Because He lives you can change!
I and you both know that there is a lot more to the message of the resurrection than that, but that is what it boils down to. Because Jesus got up on that first Easter morning nothing in this world has the power to keep you down.
Because He lives you can have a new life
Because He lives you can have a new marriage.
Because He lives you can face tomorrow.
Because He lives your sins are forgiven.
Because He lives the trials of this life are nothing compared to the glory that waits in your own personal resurrection.
Life is worth the living just because He lives!!
He is not here; for He is risen, as He said, Come; see the place where the Lord lay.
