Today, we consider the 4th commandment. In the NT era, this is one of the most controversial commands. Someone’s approach to the 4th commandment often indicates how he understands the relationship of the OT law to the church.
Paul says in v. 20: But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead. The assertion stands out like a great, single, solitary mountain on a landscape. After all the hypotheticals that littered the previous paragraph, this assertion is true and real. This morning, as we consider vv. 20-22, the point of this sermon is to see that the fact that Christ has been raised means that we will be raised. How does the resurrection of Christ demand our resurrection?
