The resurrection is the one thing that gives us hope. For if Christ has been raised, then as Paul says — we, too, shall be raised if we trust Him. The Resurrection proved that he has conquered every enemy that was opposed to him, to God, and to us. He has not only satisfied the law and conquered death and the grave, he has vanquished the evil and in all its forms. Christ has mastered it all; he has emerged on the other side. He is the Son of God, and he has completed the work which the Father had sent him to do. We are raised with Christ. Because He Lives - We too shall live.
