In our everyday life we face the consequences of our decisions, sometimes those are good, sometimes they are not. If I choose to speed, I may get a ticket; if I decide to take the day off, I get to spend it with my wife. The things we believe about God also has consequences. Paul shows the Corinthians the importance of the resurrection by showing them the negative consequences of no resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:12-19). As a result, not only can we find confidence in the resurrection of Jesus but we see that resurrection as the basis of our faith.
