Though Lenny Kravitz is a Christian, he also is a well-respected rock star in his own right. Neither is he afraid to sing about the Lord. I’m glad because I both love Christ and good rock music.
Each Easter, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ. But why should this matter so much?
It certainly mattered to the early Christians. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:19, (KJV) that, “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
We have the hope of our rising from the dead because of what Christ did to pay our death penalty. Romans 6:23 KJV) tells us, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
But why should we be held guilty because of Adam’s sin? Because he represents us all and he failed to obey God. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:21 (KJV), “For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.”
Revelation 20:6 (KJV) explains why this rising to life eternal is so important to us who obey Christ. “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.”
I hope you liked what I wrote and this beautiful tribute to Christ’s resurrection.
On Monday, I’ll be posting about how the Christian life is like bowling.
