How Many Days Until Easter?
I hope your church pulled out all the stops for a raucous celebration of the resurrection of our Lord!
For followers of Jesus Christ, there is one of the most important days in the history of Easter Sunday. Without this there will be no reason for our faith.
The apostle Paul writes that "if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is in vain, and your faith is in vain. So I am sure that Easter Sunday is the largest of its church calendars And the best day is.
But what are you going to do until the year 2019 with the resurrection of Jesus Christ?
What will you do with the resurrection when a particular area of sin looks attractive to you, and you feel weak and unable?
What will you do with the resurrection when you have been deceived by someone, and the thoughts of retribution enter your head?
What will you do with the resurrection, when you are struggling in your marriage, and it is impossible to love each other as God has made it impossible?
When you are facing another situation with a rebel child, what will you do with the resurrection, and if you feel as if you have left any patience?
What will you do with the resurrection, when you keep in bed tonight, thinking how you will face tomorrow?
What will you do with the resurrection? Now is Easter a full year away?
3 years long Easter realities
At the end of 1 Corinthians 15, which is the longest reference to the New Testament on the resurrection, how does the apostle Paul give us practical implications for staying in the light of Easter? He writes:
"Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in Jehovah's work, knowing that Jehovah is not in vain in vain.

- The empty grave inspires us: If Christ rose from the dead, the King in power, and coming back again, we should be the most motivated community on earth, "always abound in Jehovah's work." Existence Sufficient of- We should help others to get right here, right now, because we believe in victory, redemption, and change.
- The empty grave assures us: If the guarantee of resurrection is eternity, then we believe that our misery and ministry is not "in vain." Life will get discouraged-at times, it will not appear. As there is an end in sight, or progress is invisible. But another is coming, and we will be rewarded for our faith.
