Sermon Notes

His Life-giving Resurrection
Pastor Todd Dugard // 1 Corinthians 15:12-23
March 26-27, 2016

To receive Jesus’ offer of life now and for eternity, you must believe in the resurrection (v. 12-13)

If you don’t,

…our preaching is pathetic (v. 14a)

…our faith is futile (v. 14b)

…our witness is worthless (v. 15)


…you’re still in your sin (v. 16-17)

…you’re without hope (v. 18)

…you’re to be pitied for your belief (v. 19)

But, if you do believe,

…you’ll be raised with him (v. 20-21)

…and made alive (v. 22)

…when he comes back (v. 23)
