Resurrection is a victory and an end to all sorrow

The Holy week reflecting Christ’s pain lasted for a week, but the joy of resurrection lasts fifty days (the Holy Fifty).

Moreover there is the celebration of the resurrection of Christ every Sunday.

Thus pain, thus pain is temporary, while the resurrection is permanent, “always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be manifest in our body.

For we who live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’s sake that the life of Jesus might be made manifest in one mortal body.” (2 Cor. 4:10-11)

The utmost pain is death, yet we no longer fear death, as it is going to lead us to life in Jesus; and the philosophy of pain turned out to be as follows: “though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day for our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” (2 Cor. 4:16-17)

Our view is shaped according to the goal set up for us by God namely to look forward to the glory of resurrection and the after-life, “while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Cor. 4:18).

Thus the resurrection came to mean to us experiencing the death of sin and the power of victory leading unto eternal life which fills our heart with true joy thus enabling us bear the pain and hardships of this life, hoping for the eternal one.
