Hallelujah! He is risen! Welcome to the most wonderful celebration of the year. Today we celebrate together the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Two thousand years ago, God’s plan of redemption altered the world forever. The power of sin and death was broken through the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ that first Easter. Death was defeated. True life, spiritual life, God’s life triumphed.
Today is the culmination of our journey together through the events of Holy Week. We started with Palm Sunday and coming alive to Jesus’s life, which was above and beyond human understanding. On Good Friday, we did not look down in fear or defeat but held our heads high in order to focus on the cross and come alive to the sacrifice Jesus made. And today we celebrate! Jesus is alive, and through His resurrection, we come alive to His power to change our lives and to transform each one of us into a new creation.
The resurrection means that no situation is too hopeless! No problem is too big for Jesus! He’s still in the resurrection business—and He has the power to change your life!
If you are a believer today and struggling with life, stop trying to do it on your own. Call out to God and ask Him to start changing you and living through Jesus’ Resurrection Power.
If you have never placed your faith in the risen Savior, Jesus Christ, I would invite you to do that today. You can come to the front right now, or meet me after the service to talk.
