Overview

What does the doctrine of the resurrection of Jesus Christ mean? There are two sides to this doctrine: 1) The resurrection of Christ is a fact to be believed; and 2) The resurrection of Christ is an experience to connect with.

Philippians 3:3–11

Philippians 3:3-11 teaches us the importance of faith in Jesus, rather than focusing on our own accomplishments. It highlights the fact of Jesus’ resurrection as something that actually happened and something we can personally experience. It shows us that being a Christian involves understanding and feeling, as both faith and personal experiences are vital in our relationship with God. The passage encourages us to deeply desire to know Jesus and to feel the power of His resurrection, placing this above any worldly achievements. It also suggests that going through tough times, like Jesus did, can help us grow and change spiritually.
