Easter Sunday – Believing in the Resurrection of Jesus

Passage: John 20:1-18

The bodily resurrection of Jesus is not only the center of Christianity, it is also the main truth for Christian belief and faith. Christian faith is not general belief in the existence of God and Jesus, but trust in the truth that Jesus lived, died, and rose bodily from the dead to secure our redemption, and to give eternal life as a free gift of faith in this truth. Not everyone views faith in a positive way, but the story recorded in John 20 reveals the beauty of true faith which is rational, personal and gracious. When we understand the true nature of Christian faith, we will be more inclined to receive it and pursue growth in it.
