Pastor's Message
The Resurrection

Luke 23:54 & Luke 24: 1-12 (pastor read these passages)

No other religion like that of Christians. The Bible is not only a religious book, but also a book of history. Many have tried to prove the Bible as false, only to be proven wrong. The book is TRUTH!
Some critics say Jesus was really alive when laid in the tomb...other stories were conjured up.
Spices were brought by these women b/c the time of year was warm. Spices would help to cover the odor of a decaying body.
They were met by angels asking them why they were looking for the living among the dead. The women remembered the prophets. They went to Peter and the other disciples to share what they saw and heard. The first Easter w/ not much different from any other day. Vs 13-31 Then Jesus appeared to 2 of these men on the road to Emmaus. Jesus went thru the scriptures w/them concerning himself. Afterwards, He tarried w/them until He broke bread & gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened & they now understood the fulfillment of the scriptures. He then disappeared. Sometimes we don't remember words, but we remember actions. They walked back to Jerusalem (about 2 hrs) and shared their story to the other disciples...."THE LORD HAS RISEN, INDEED!" After they shared, Jesus appeared to all of them. Thy were afraid & He had to prove to them who he was. He spoke to them and gave them a commission to be His witness, starting with Jerusalem. What does the resurrection mean to YOU today? The power to live a new life! Rom 6:1-4 The life we live is His life through us. Chapter 6: 9-14...new creations! We now live under a day of grace. Given power to live a changed life! Are you living in the power of the Resurrection. How do you know? 1. We no longer need to yield to sins anymore. Victory can be yours! 2. We will be in God's Word - growing spiritually. 3. Fruits of the Spirit will be evident in our lives. 4. When Jesus is on the throne of our life.
Are you living the power of the resurrection?
