Life is VICTORIOUS over death on this Easter Sunday. That’s a big statement. Easter is the day we celebrate Jesus breaking the grave. It doesn’t work anymore. All the dead will rise from the grave one day.
Where is God? We equate good fortune with God’s favor and bad fortune with his judgment. So if life is generally good, God must be happy with our performance no matter what we do! That false security must be CRUSHED. God must constantly remind us where he intends to be found—in the gospel.
How is the resurrection revealed? This is the season of Epiphany after all. For the past six weeks we’ve seen Jesus reveal his power through one miracle after another. This Sunday we see that he is revealed as God on the pages of Scripture. The Gospel of Luke shows that perfectly with the Beatitudes.
Easter means no fear! What are a few your biggest fears? As get to the top of the list, death is usually one of the items. Death of a loved one, your own death… Easter changes everything, yes, even taking away the fear of death. Join us as we celebrate the resurrection.
Christ the King is the one who is in charge of everything. This can be difficult to see at times because his kingdom is not of this world. Even though this is true, it doesn’t mean that he has no control. Jesus controls all things for the good of his church. One day he will end this world and, finally, every knee will bow before the King of Kings.
