For over 2,000 years there has been much debate around whether or not the resurrection of Christ actually happened. Clarence Jordan a 20th century saint stated the following,
"The proof that God raised Jesus from the dead is not the empty tomb, but the full hearts of his transformed disciples. The crowning evidence that he lives is not a vacant grave, but a spirit-filled fellowship. Not a rolled-away stone, but a carried-away church."
As followers of Christ, we are called to "practice resurrection" - to live our lives in such a way that gives meaning to Jesus' resurrection. Carl Gregg asks the question, “How are we partnering with God today in transforming despair into hope, apathy into compassion, hate into love, and death into new life?”
Why not worry less about whether or not people believe the resurrection happened 2,000 years ago and focus more on living as if the resurrection still happens?
