Christ’s Resurrection – true hope for the world

By Leela Ramdeen, Chair, CCSJ, & Director, CREDI

Christ is risen, Alleluia! The blogger, Phil Newton, wrote: ‘9 ways Christ’s Resurrection gives us hope for today.’ Numbers 5 and 9 read: “The bodily resurrection motivates us to holy living. Fixing our hope on the future in Christ builds a deeper desire for pure, holy lives (1 John 3:1–3; 1 Cor 15:33–34, 58).”

“The bodily resurrection affirms that our toil and labour in this life are not in vain. Why grow weary in serving Christ in the present when it’s just good preparation for the future of eternal service? ‘Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord’ (1 Cor 15:58).”
