Why Easter Matters



Why Easter Matters



1 Corinthians 15, Pastor Howard Harden
Message delivered April 20th, 2014 during the morning services.

If Jesus is NOT risen...

  1. Our FAITH is in VAIN. (vs. 14)
  2. Our WITNESSES are FALSE. (vs. 15-16)
  3. Our SINS are not FORGIVEN. (vs. 17)
  4. Our LOVED ONES have no HOPE. (vs. 18)
  5. Our LIVES are MEANINGLESS. (vs. 19)

However...

  1. Because He lives, our FAITH has a FOUNDATION
  2. Because He lives, TRUTH can be KNOWN
  3. Because He lives, FORGIVENESS is AVAILABLE
  4. Because He lives, DEATH is DEFEATED
  5. Because He lives, life is WORTH LIVING!
