“Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not
here; he has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in
Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be
crucified and on the third day be raised again’” (Luke 24:5-7).

“And who through the Spirit of Holiness was declared with
power to be the Son of God by His resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our
Lord” (Rom. 1:4).

“He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised
to life for our justification” (Rom. 4:25).

The risen Christ is why we are here.
