Let’s say if Jesus didn’t rise from the dead, and that for all intensive purposes, God is actually dead. However, the way in which the resurrection that is championed throughout all of church history is enacted through us.
“God” stirs within the actions humans commit, when these actions are akin to the nature of God revealed in Jesus.
What if the resurrection was up to us? How differently and passionately would we live if it was upon our shoulders to bring a resurrected Jesus to the lost, and without us, God was dead.
Because I would argue without a church willing to live as though this is true, we’ll continue to live in a world that views God as nothing more than an antique.
If God is dead, we must be the Resurrection.
