THE MEANING LIES IN OUR POTENTIAL

It is for us to take the resurrection for granted; after all, it is such a popular notion in our modern world. However, I am not sure we understand it much better than the first Christians did.

Do we really understand what God has done for us? In order to answer this question, we must also answer why the resurrection is so necessary? (and it is far too easy to say, “so that we could be freed from sin”) I do not believe we can really understand the meaning of the resurrection without also understanding the meaning behind our own free will.

To find out why this is so necessary, you’ll simply have to tune in, but I will give you the punchline: The resurrection complete the choice that we have been given by God. It is the ultimate answer to why we have free will. In the resurrection, we understand the height of our potential.
