Scriptures for Resurrection Sunday

These verses were compiled by my mother, Claudette Litz, and (though she did not want any attention for this) she took the list to people in nursing homes as an outreach to them today. She said it was really sweet offering these people, in the three nursing homes where she visits monthly in the Knoxville, TN, area, to show love to the residents, read them the Bible and tell them about Jesus. I can’t thank God enough for a mother like mine.

If the dead do not rise, “Let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die!”. . . But someone will say, “How are the dead raised up? And with what body do they come?” Foolish one, what you sow is not made alive unless it dies.. . . There are also celestial bodies and terrestrial bodies, but the glory of the celestial is one and the glory of the terrestrial is another. . . The body is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.. . .And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

21. 1 Cor. 15:55-57 = O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But, thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

22. 2 Cor. 5:1-6 = For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always confident knowing that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
