Most of us hate waiting, even if we’re waiting for something we really want or something we really prayed for a long time. If we think about it, why is waiting really hard for us to do? Why can’t we just be patient and rely on God’s timing? Like what Abraham did, He waited for a very long time to receive God’s reward for Him. He believed God & that He will be blessed and God credited Abraham as righteous man for His faith. In Abraham’s story, God gave him a son named Isaac after thirty years as his reward for being faithful. But God tested again His trust and faith. He told Abraham to give his only son as a sacrifice.  Without second thoughts, Abraham rose early in the morning to obey God’s command. We can see that his trust and faith for God’s plan is so strong that He is willing to give His only son that he waited for 30 years. Again, he proved to God that He is a servant that is willing to do everything for Him. He is a servant ready for any command from the Lord.

Similar with Abraham’s story, God also gave up His only begotten son Jesus Christ to save His people. His great love for us lead Him sacrificing His son, our one and only savior. Us Christians should not be impatient in waiting for Jesus’ resurrection. Like Abraham we must be willing to wait even for a very long time because we know that it’s only Jesus’ comeback will save us believers. Jesus is our awaited savior. The story of Isaac is one of the many prophecies foreshadowing the coming of Jesus Christ.

It is said in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, “For I passed on to you as of first importance what I also received—that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures”

A lot of things are important but here are the 3 things that are important to us as Christians: Christ died, He was buried, and He lived again.

Here are some points telling us the importance of Jesus’ resurrection.

1.     Jesus’ Resurrection is the Basis of our Faith

1 Corinthians 15:17-19 tells us “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins. Furthermore, those who have fallen asleep in Christ have also perished. For if only in this life we have hope in Christ, we should be pitied more than anyone.”

Because Christ resurrected, we can say that someday we are going to heaven. If Jesus did not resurrected, then we should be pitied more than anyone. But no, we believe that Christ resurrected!

2.     The Resurrection of Jesus Shows His Power

The Book of John tells us that Jesus’ Resurrection was not simple. He was beaten to death and hidden in a place where 4 people had to roll a stone to keep it secure, and even had guards so no one will get Him. Jesus’ resurrection proves that He is powerful enough to save us because He rose from the dead beyond reasonable doubt.

3.     Foreshadowing our Future – 1 Corinthians 15:23 tells us that “But each in his own order: Christ, the first-fruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him.” If Christ said He will resurrect after 3 days, then when He said that He will come again, then we know we can hold on to that promise no matter what. Our faith is not a game of change. Through His Word, God has left us many clues because we know what is true and false.

Verses 30-34 makes us see that "if there is no resurrection, 'Let's feast and drink, for tomorrow we die!' Don't be fooled by those who say such things, for 'bad company corrupts good character.' Think carefully about what is right, and stop sinning.”

Businessmen believe in opportunity cost, where anything you do will have a corresponding consequence. Here is our appeal to your common sense:

a.     If Jesus is real, and you believe, then you will be saved.

b.     If Jesus is not true, and you don’t believe, then you will not lose anything.

c.      If Jesus is not true, but you believe that He is, then you were deceived together with 2 billion other Christians.

d.     But if Jesus is true and you did not believe in Him, then you are doomed for eternity. All your life, you will be in hell.

If you compare the latter 2, it’s better to be tricked, than to be doomed for eternity. Don’t put yourself in the situation of suffering for eternity after living on a temporary world. Best to prepare yourself for eternity with God!

God made hell for the demons, and not for human beings. You are bound to heaven. If you would ask why God sends people to hell, it’s because God gave us a choice. Remember, the ball is in your court. You have to choice, will you accept Him and go to heaven, or will you turn away from Him and live in hell?

The greatest love of all is when God gave up His only begotten son, that whomsoever believe in Him will not perish but have eternal life. How wonderful it is to give our life for God.

If you want to receive Jesus today, don’t hesitate. Make it known to Him that you are available.
