I Corinthians 15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
Paul makes it clear in I Corinthians 15 that if Jesus did not rise from the dead, then we have wasted our lives. Believing in Jesus is about much more than this life. If there is no life after death, then we are wasting our lives.
The real story is that God is good and a blessing to us in this life, but that is not enough. If all we had were the quality of life that we have in Christ, we would be living miserable lives. Jesus rose from the dead. We that believe will also live forever with Him after death.
Christianity is about both the here and now and the then and there. We live blessed now, but since He arose, we will live again also. Do you know that you will go to heaven when you die?
