What the Resurrection means to us?

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.   He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Matthew 28:5-6

What did the resurrection mean to the early disciples?


  • It meant Peter wasn’t going back to be a fisherman

  • It meant Mary didn’t have to have a funeral for her Son

  • It meant the grieving stopped

  • It meant Life after Death was possible


 The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the central event in human history, and for Christians, it is the “proof in the pudding”.  But what does it mean to you & me?

The resurrection means that Jesus is who He claimed to be:

The resurrection means that the Bible is truly the word of God

The resurrection means that death, even your death, is not final.

The resurrection means that your forgiveness is real

The resurrection means we have a reason to die.

  Conclusion:  We have these things then, that the Resurrection of Jesus, from the dead means to us today.  But it does not mean all these things to everyone.  Some still don’t believe the scriptures, some reject Jesus, some deny the afterlife, some turn away from baptism and forgiveness, and some live in constant fear of a defeated enemy –death.  What about you?  What does the resurrection mean to you?  Is it the burning fire that drives all your hopes and actions, or is it just another “doctrine” of the church?
