Why is Easter So Big?
One pastor said, “What a thrill it is to be a preacher on Easter! It's better than being Irish on St. Patrick's Day, or a child on Christmas morning.”
Why is Easter so big? What makes the Resurrection of Jesus so significant? First, the Resurrection announced victory over sin, death, hell and the grave. Jesus arose from the grave and told His followers, “Because I live, you shall live also.” (John 14:19)
Billy Graham said this about Christ’s Resurrection, "If I were an enemy of Christianity, I would aim right at the Resurrection, because that's the heart of Christianity."
Without the Resurrection, the Cross is a meaningless tragedy. Without the Resurrection, Jesus could not have been our Savior, and certainly was not divine. Without the Resurrection, we have no hope for our future. We would still be dead in our sins. We would not know the joy of our salvation.
The apostle Paul cut to the heart of Christianity when he wrote this: "But if there is no Resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain" (1 Corinthians 15:13-14).
