- For believers, the resurrection is quite significant
- The resurrection has to be personal, without it there is no reality of hope
- Resurrection Uniqueness: Jesus is Deity; Because death preceded and necessitated the resurrection; because it was part of God's eternal plan; no precedence-Jesus was the first fruits
- Resurrection Necessity: Proved that Jesus claimed who He said He is; Accomplished all that Jesus said He would do; To have a living faith; Fulfilled all Biblical prophecy.
- Resurrection Logic: As the Son of God, Jesus could not be held in the grave.
- There is an urgency for us in regards to the resurrection; We have to come from an academic faith to a personal faith
- That is why we celebrate a RISEN LORD!!!
