At times, the American church seems to neglect the resurrection. I, along with others, have been guilty of trying to explain the Gospel of Jesus Christ without a significant emphasis on the resurrection. We say things like, “Jesus died for your sins.” Now that is certainly true, but it is incomplete without any mention of Jesus’ subsequent resurrection. Jesus’ penal substitutionary death on the cross and victorious resurrection from that death are what guarantee those who are in Christ eternal life.
