1 Corinthians 15:3-8
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.
Jesus doesn’t simply want you to believe in the historical fact of His resurrection—He wants you to know Him!
He’s there with you now as you read this, helping you understand Him better. When you invite God to lead your life, it’s Jesus whose life changes your life. When the Holy Spirit works in your heart and life to reveal what God wants to do in your life, that’s Jesus revealing his heart to you.
Jesus told the disciples, “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you.” (John 16:13-14)
