The Glorious Easter Hymns

The central theme of the Easter hymns is the triumphant resurrection of Jesus Christ and what it means to us, His disciples.

Easter Hymns - Happy Easter Card

The message shouts loud and clear.

God's not dead! He's alive!

This is a fact. Jesus lives today. And because He lives, we live. One Easter Christian hymn, Jesus Lives, and So Shall I, explains this.

Without Easter, there is no victory in the Christian life. According to one of the popular Easter popular hymns, Because He lives, we can face tomorrow. Our reason for living is anchored deeply on the risen Christ. He is the reason why we wake up each morning and set out to do the things we do each day. Every breath we take, every deed we do, every word we say, is for Jesus and because of Jesus - our risen Savior.

Paul's argument in 1 Corinthians 15:12-33 about the resurrection of the dead gives us a glimpse of his thought and teaching on the resurrection of Christ.

Paul argued from the irrefutable fact that the resurrection of Christ is true. A fact that has been accepted and preached by Christ's apostles.

That's why his question - But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen and if Christ is not risen then all preaching is useless, so is our faith. In fact, this makes us all to be false witnesses about God. Did we not testify that God raised Christ from the dead? Then in the law of court, we have committed felony.

So no resurrection from the dead --> no resurrection of Christ --> our faith is futile --> we are still in our sins --> we are lost --> we are pitiful creatures and so on.

But the reverse is equally true and even more effective. (It takes great supernatural power - divine power - the power of the Holy Spirit - to reverse the deterioration of life).

Christ has indeed been raised from the dead. Another Easter hymn, I Know that My Redeemer Lives. And because Jesus lives, every positive thing follows. There is forgiveness of sin. There is freedom from the power of sin. There is victory in the Christian life. There is eternal life. We are not lost. There is life after death and so on and on.

This is the central message in all the Easter hymns. We have a reason for living because Christ has risen.

Indeed life is worth living even in the midst of difficulties. In time of tribulation, we can give thanks to God and stand firm. For He has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

And wonder or wonders! The same power that raised Christ from the dead is for us and is at work within us.

What a God! What a glorious and victorious life we have! Happy Easter!
