Chapter Twelve: Invincible Life
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Indestructible; unable to be conquered, subdued, or overcome… these are the traits we love in our heroes, whether in comic books, movies, dreams, or sports. We are enthralled with the concept of invincibility.
Eventually, though we come to recognize that invincibility is very elusive: Superman died, Michael Jordon didn’t always win, and the Titanic sits at the bottom of the Atlantic.
Yet, there is One who proved to be indestructible, unable to be conquered, subdued, or overcome: Jesus Christ. Death could not overcome Him, the grave could not keep Him, He was invincible!
No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again.
John 10:18 (ESV)
The next few weeks we are studying through Chapter 15 of 1 Corinthians as Paul teaches the reality and possibility of the Resurrection. Please join us as we prepare for Easter Sunday.
I love what John Piper writes concerning Christ’s Resurrection:
“The glory of Christ is the power of his resurrection into invincible life and omnipotent authority will be reflected back to him in the joyful worship of his risen and perfected saints.”
Let us praise and worship the true, invincible One!
