Easter Quotes – John Piper: Ten Results of the Resurrection

Desiring God recently reposted a short article / list by John Piper originally written in 1986 about “the results” of the resurrection – i.e. the blessings we enjoy as a result of the fact that Christ is risen:

1) A savior who can never die again. “For we know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again.Romans 6:9

2) Repentance. “The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree. God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel.Acts 5:31

3) New birth. “By his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” 1 Peter 1:3

4) Forgiveness of sin.If Christ has not been raised, your hope is futile and you are still in your sins.1 Corinthians 15:17

5) The Holy Spirit. “This Jesus God raised up, and of that we are all witnesses. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this which you see and hear.” Acts 2:32-33
