It's all about a relationship!

John 3:16, “For God so love that He gave His one and only son.” Relationship is the goal of the resurrection. Relationship is the connection between God and His creation. God was so moved to be involved in your life that he was willing to step out of eternity and into history to be with you. This desire is especially in regards the way he was willing to die for you.
The what of the resurrection is that we have a relationship with Jehovah God.
There's an old story of the boy who sat, waiting for a bus. A man walking by spotted the boy, and gave him some gentle instruction. "Son," he said, "if you're waiting on the bus, you need to move to the bus stop. That's where the bus stops for passengers."

"It's OK," said the boy. "I'll just wait right here, and the bus will stop for me."

The man repeated his argument, but the boy never moved. Just then, the bus appeared. Amazingly, the bus pulled over to where the boy stood, and the child hopped on. The man on the sidewalk stood speechless. The boy turned around in the doorway and said, "Mister, I knew the bus would stop here, because the bus driver is my dad!"
When you've got a family relationship with the bus driver, you don't need a bus stop. If you father is a busy CEO, you don’t have to wait to get a hearing. If your dad is a US Senator, you won't need an appointment to slip into his office. If you've given your heart to the King of Kings, you're in his royal family of unspeakable proportions. God is waiting to hear and have a relationship with you. The what of the resurrection is the why of a relationship.  2 Corinthians 5:15: “And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.”  He has a deep love for us and he desires a relationship with us.
Glad for my relationship with you the reader...You know I love ya, Don
