1 Corinthians 15: 32b: “If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” An astonishing number of Christians no longer believe in the resurrection. But if death still reigns, what is Jesus the Messiah of? What did He deliver us from? Christianity without the resurrection is just a religion; a religion which includes no power to help a believer keep it. Rather than follow such an inutile dogma, might as well let your hair down. But Christ is alive, and the resurrection does empower believers. So control yourself – tomorrow we live!
