Benefits of the Resurrection

Q. What benefit do we receive from the resurrection of Christ? A. First, by His resurrection He has overcome death, that He might make us partakers of the righteousness which He has obtained for us by His death. Second, by His power we are also now raised up to a new life. Third, the resurrection of Christ is to us a sure pledge of our blessed resurrection. (The Heidelberg Catechism, Q&A 45) Q. What benefits do believers receive from Christ at the resurrection? A. At the resurrection, believers being raised up in glory, shall be openly acknowledged and acquitted in the day of judgment, and made perfectly blessed in the full enjoying of God to all eternity. (The Westminster Shorter Catechism, Q&A 38)
