It changes everything!

Romans 10:9 NIV
[9] That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

The resurrection changes everything!
When God raised Jesus from the dead it changed our future. By God's grace we have a future. Saying that we are a Christian is not evidence. Living what we what we believe is evidence. Not that works will bring us salvation but that our salvation is evidenced by how we live. Our life is the fruit of what we truly believe.
If we truly believe that the resurrection of Jesus is true then it should dramatically change our life and the way that we interact to our family, friends, neighbours and indeed the world around us.

Christianity is not a "religion". It is a relationship with the risen Lord Jesus.
God raising Him from the dead proves that He is the Lord of all. He is our Lord! If He is our Lord then we must submit to His lordship.
If we truly believe He is risen, it must change us! 

I Serve a Risen Saviour
  • I serve a risen Saviour 
      He’s in the world today.
    I know that He is living,
      Whatever men may say.
    I see His hand of mercy;
      I hear His voice of cheer;
    And just the time I need Him
      He’s always near.
    • He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
      He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
      He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
      You ask me how I know He lives?
          He lives within my heart.
  • In all the world around me
      I see His loving care,
    And though my heart grows weary,
      I never will despair;
    I know that He is leading,
      Through all the stormy blast;
    The day of His appearing
      Will come at last.
  • Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian,
      Lift up your voice and sing
    Eternal hallelujahs
      To Jesus Christ the King!
    The Hope of all who seek Him,
      The Help of all who find,
    None other is so loving,
      So good and kind.
