1 Peter 1:3-9  "Benefit of the Resurrection"

The resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ is one of the truths Christianity is built upon.  Along with the virgin birth, His deity, Christ's sinless life, His death for payment for our sins, are the foundation for Christianity.  This text says we have hope because of Christ's resurrection, a living hope.  The resurrection gives us assurance and confidence that when our life is over on this earth, we can and will experience life with Christ Jesus in heaven.  When it is said, gives assurance, assurance for only those who have trusted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  Those who reject Him have no such assurance.  the benefit of the resurrection, knowing that heaven is my home.  Be sure it is your eternal home.
