We can know where we are going after we die. It is not a false hope but a promise that is backed by solid evidence.

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died
for our sins according to the Scriptures,
that he was buried that he
was raised on the third according
to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter,
and then to the Twelve.  After that, he appeared to more than
five hundred of the brothers at the same time.


Losing a family member is one of the most difficult situationsin life. Have you ever experienced this? I have led the funerals for two of my grandpas- one was a pioneer in the field of open-heart surgery and the other one was a paratrooper who fought in the Battle of The Bulge in WorldWar II. I used to call one of my grandpas every Friday (which was my day off work) to talk and pray together. There are so many days when I miss my grandfathers and would just like to talk with them again. I admire my grandpas, and their deaths remind me that this life is not our full story.

We can know where we are going after we die because He lives. It is not a false hope but a promise that is backed by solid evidence. There are many things that are important in the Christian faith, but this is the most significant. We often hear the word “gospel,” which literally means “good news,” but we aren’t sure what it means.

The gospel is the heart and crux of Christianity.

The good news has two sides:

1) Jesus died for your sins

2) Jesus is alive, because He has risen from the grave.

When you consider what Christ has done for us, His grace is overwhelming both on the cross and in His victory over death. His power over the grave has historical evidence, as there were many witnesses; and it also leaves us in awe of His supernatural power and grace.
