10 reasons why the Resurrection matters

1) It makes salvation possible

2) Without believing the Resurrection, you cannot be saved

3) It confirms the reliability of the New Testament

4) It gives us hope of the new life to come

5) Jesus' resurrection previews what our bodies will be like

6) The resurrection demonstrates that God the Father accepted Christ’s suffering as a full payment for sin

7) The resurrection displays the magnitude of power available to Christians in their struggle against sin 

8) The resurrection motivates us to turn away from sin 

9) The resurrection proves the reliability of Old Testament prophecy

10) The resurrection confirms that Jesus was the Son of God

There's more explanation of the 10 here BUT the take home point is that we should make sure our Easter celebrations have more to them than just eggs and feasting. Eggs and feasting are good but they should be a jewel in Christ's victorious crown over death. 

He is risen, Alleluia Alleluia
