Mark 16:6 [ESV]  “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. hat does the cross mean to me? Everything. How could it not mean everything for a Christian? Paul said this in his first letter to the Corinthians, chapter 15 verses 16-20, “For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
