More Than An Empty Tomb!

 More Than An Empty Tomb!

How else could Christianity have been launched from Jerusalem and go on to impact the entire planet unless a bodily resurrection had been confirmed by the first followers of Jesus in Jerusalem?

An empty tomb would not have been enough to convince of resurrection.

It wasn’t for the disciples!

Initially they did not believe that Jesus had risen from the dead. More evidence was needed — and they got it! Over and over again during a forty day period Jesus made Himself known to the disciples and to countless eye witnesses. No reasonable explanation exists for the existence of Christianity other than the bodily resurrection of Christ.

But what does the resurrection mean?

In short, Jesus came to make all things new! And He wants to bring His regenerative resurrection power of the Holy Spirit into your life!

Do you need forgiveness? Do you feel stuck in your circumstances? Are you disillusioned by life?

The resurrection proclaims that there is a God and that we were made to experience a relationship with Him. It tells us that He loves us enough not to leave us the way we are. It tells us that everything is moving toward the King of the coming KINGdom! The Gospel is good news! The Gospel is that there is a Father who sent His only begotten Son to make all things new. But He won’t force Himself on you. You will need to open the door of your heart by repentance and faith and you can do that today!   

“God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel that our heart was designed to burn, or the food our heart was designed to feed on. There is no other. That is why it is just no good asking God to make us Happy IN OUR OWN WAY without Him. God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.” (Oxford professor and author C.S. Lewis)

I want to encourage you to reach out to your friends this good Friday as we celebrate the incredible demonstration of sacrificial love on the cross for us and Sunday as we celebrate the risen Christ. Tell a friend and bring a friend! Let’s see what the Lord will do in impacting our lives.
