Where can we find new life? Jesus takes time after his resurrection to lead his disciples into his word. He does this because he knows that he is leaving! He does this because his Spirit will use the Word to fan the flame of faith into a blaze! Where can we find new life? It is found in God’s Word – only in Jesus name.
He lives! The grave is broken. Where, O, Death is your victory? Where, O, Death is your sting? Most of the time its a bad idea to taunt anyone. But on Easter Sunday there is nothing that death can do. Eternal life is a fact. Eternal life is ours in Jesus.
Do we really need Easter? Jesus paid for our sins on the cross, didn’t he? Why is Easter so vital to the Christian faith? It is the proof – the unchanging truth that if Jesus could keep the biggest promise – rising from the dead – he can do anything!
I think there are a few people in life who know exactly where they are, but at the same time, they are completely lost. Does this sound like you? This Sunday we’ll talk with two disciples who didn’t understand Easter. They knew the facts, but they couldn’t put it all together. Lost on your Easter Journey? Let Jesus show you the way!
Jesus is the Good Shepherd of our souls. Today we’ll contrast Jesus with the Pharisees of his day. They looked really good, but their message ended in spirit death. Jesus gives us life – eternal life. His sheep hear his voice!
