The resurrection is not just one element in the Christian story; it’s not just one feature of Christianity–it is the main event. The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave is the greatest event in history. It is the major moment, the major reality in redemption. It is the cornerstone of gospel promise. It is the primary theme of worship and praise because the resurrection is the source of eternal life for believers; because He lives, we live also. Without the resurrection, the cross, the death of Christ, would be meaningless. Without the resurrection, the cross would be powerless. If Christ is not raised, says the New Testament, then your faith is worthless and you are still in your sins…if Christ is not raised. ~ John MacArthur

 Mark 16:1–8

 

 Mark 16:1–8
 
The resurrection is not a postscript. The resurrection is not an epilogue. It’s not an appendix at the end of the story. It is the climactic high point of the work of Christ, of the saga of redemption, of the purpose of God to save His people. The church doesn’t meet on Friday. The church meets on Sunday. We’re thankful for the cross, but we celebrate the resurrection as making the cross meaningful. And so we meet every first day of the week as we mark out the significance–the singular significance–of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the cornerstone of our faith.  ~ John MacArthur
