    I’ll never forget the Easter Sunday in 1993 when Bernhard Langer won the Masters golf tournament. As he stepped off the 18th green to receive the green jacket—one of golf’s most coveted prizes—a reporter said, “This must be the greatest day of your life!” Without missing a beat, Langer replied: “It’s wonderful to win the greatest tournament in the world, but it means more to win on Easter Sunday—to celebrate the resurrection of my Lord and Savior.”

    1 Corinthians 15:12-26

    Are there any two more devastating words than no hope? No hope beyond a devastating diagnosis, no hope when we lose our job, no hope when our loved one dies, and ultimately no hope when we face our own mortality?

    At some point in our lives, we will all endure the kind of loss that will knock us off our feet and tempt us to abandon hope. And what if there is no resurrection? Then our lack of hope applies not just to this life but to eternity. And if that's the case, then there's nothing left in life but to eat, drink, and live it up.

    This is just religious jealousy by this religious council, the Sanhedrin Council, against this man who has come along, stirring up the people, getting a lot of followers, getting people excited and teaching something, which is in direct conflict with what the Sanhedrin Council stood for. It is out of envy, out of jealousy.

    3300 Dana Pankey Classic: (Self-reliance, Indifference toward God) Born in 1901, Dana, the son of the largest landowner/rancher in New Mexico, grew up around old-time cowboys and picked up their coarse language and attitudes. Thinking he could gain favor with God by being good, he ignored God and tried living a good life. When he encountered an old cowboy singing a Gospel song on a street corner, he placed his faith in Christ. Involved in a letter writing ministry to shut-ins, he suffered several strokes, able to type with only one finger, but continued his ministry.

    Cindi mixed cake batter, set the oven at the correct temperature, and popped the cake in to bake. "I'll clean the bowl," offered her brother Nick.

    "Nope." Cindi quickly ran water into the bowl. "I've heard the batter isn't good for you like that. You'll have to wait till the cake is done."

    But when the cake was done, it did not look good! "I'll try it," said Nick. He cut out a small piece. "Yuck!" he exclaimed. "Not even frosting will help that!"

    Dad came in from the garage as Cindi tried the cake and made a face. "What's going on?" Dad asked.

    "Cindi's cake tastes funny," replied Nick.

    Seeing the sugar cannister still standing on the counter, Dad looked startled. "Oh, no!" he exclaimed. "It's my fault, Cindi, and I'm sorry. Yesterday I picked up a few groceries. When I got home, a box of salt was leaking. The sugar canister was empty, so I poured the salt into it. The phone rang and I forgot to mention it." Dad hugged her as he apologized. "I'm afraid you used salt instead of sugar."

    "See? You should have let me clean the bowl," said Nick. "Then you wouldn't have even baked it."

    "Does this remind anybody of Pastor's message last Sunday?" Mom asked. "He talked about the verse in Isaiah where people said evil was good and light was darkness and bitter was sweet. Remember? Of course, salt isn't bitter, but the idea is still the same. The label on the canister said the contents were sweet, but they sure weren't."

    "No." Dad shook his head. "It's too bad that happened, but at least you can bake a new cake. If people say a thing is good when God says it's evil, that's much more serious."

    "Like . . . what sort of things might they say?" Cindi asked.

    "Well, how about if someone says a movie or TV show is good, but it uses bad words or makes sinful behavior look okay?" Mom asked.

    "That's calling evil good," said Nick. "Saying that doing drugs is good or that cigarettes won't hurt you are other examples of calling evil good, right?"

    "Some kids say going to Bible club is a waste of time," said Cindi. "That's just the opposite. It's saying that something good is evil."

    Dad smiled. "You're getting the idea," he said. "In fact, I think you've got it!"

    How About You?
    Do you know which things God says are good, and which He says are evil? In today's world, many people try to make the good sound evil and the evil sound good. It's sad that people often think things like truthfulness, kindness, and patience are not always necessary--and that dishonesty, immorality, and cheating are sometimes okay. That isn't true. Know what God says in His Word, and follow His guidelines.

    Today's Key Verse:
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil. (Isaiah 5:20)

    Today's Key Thought:
    Never say something evil is good

    Episode Summary:

    Jesus died to pay for our sins, but why is his resurrection from the dead so important? You’re invited to experience how our Savior conquered sin, death, and Satan for us all on this week’s Kids Corner.

    Listen to this week's episode


    Verse: 1 Corinthians 15:1-8

    And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.

    Have you ever met someone who said, “I think that Jesus was a real person—even a man of God, but there’s no way he rose from the dead.  That’s just too crazy to believe.”  Have you ever been challenged that it is nonsense to believe Jesus is alive?  Do you have a reply?

    Jesus did rise from the dead. Let’s look at the evidence.  Jesus spent 40 days after his resurrection talking to people.  Jesus physically appeared to Mary Magdalene, the two disciples walking to Emmaus, 10 of the disciples, and Thomas (who refused to believe Jesus was alive until he could physically see Jesus’ wounds).  Paul wrote that Jesus appeared to more than 500 fellow Christians—many of whom were still alive to testify. (I Corinthians 15:6)  More than 500 witnesses said Jesus was indeed alive!

    James was the half-brother of Jesus.  He did not believe in Jesus as anyone’s savior….until Jesus appeared to him.  James then became a major leader of the Christian church.  Paul hated everything to do with Jesus; he hunted Christians down….until he met Jesus.  For the rest of his life, Paul traveled the world and wrote letters—proclaiming Jesus is alive!

    The disciples were so afraid the night Jesus was arrested, they ran.   They weren’t scholars, they weren’t brave, they weren’t bold at all….until after Jesus rose.  For the rest of their lives, they boldly proclaimed the good news of Jesus’ salvation to everyone.  Only a truly living Jesus could inspire such a radical transformation in these men!

    It’s not crazy to believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again on the third day.  It’s very logical to look at the evidence and decide that Jesus did rise from the grave.  But Jesus doesn’t just want us to know that he is alive; Jesus wants our hearts, our lives, our love, all of us!  Jesus died to pay for our sins.  When he rose from the dead, he conquered sin and death—for us!  Hallelujah, Jesus is alive!

    Discussion Guide:

    This verse comes from Paul’s defense of the resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15. Here Paul says that the resurrection of Jesus from the dead is of “first importance” in his message to the Corinthians. He says, “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ dies for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.” Paul goes on to list others to whom Jesus appeared, all proof that this was not a figment of his, or anyone else’s imagination. 

    Many have tried to explain away the resurrection of Jesus. But the resurrection is an essential part God’s rescue plan for us. Jesus died, but he didn’t stay in the grave. Jesus came out of the grave a risen Lord. This is essential to our faith, hope, and salvation.
