Easter Sunday – He Is Risen

Summary: For a lot of people, Easter is just another holiday, a 3-day weekend of fun and no work. For others, it’s chocolate bunnies and Easter eggs.

Today, we’re celebrating the single, most important event in human history. The resurrection of Jesus has done more to change the world than any invention, any election, any empire or any political victory.

BUT WE KNOW BETTER! For Christians, aster means the r from the ! It means the promise of life after death!

It means

The resurrection of Jesus is the basis of our faith.

If Jesus didn’t rise from the dead then we’re just wasting our time here every Sunday.

 

o People often ask, “Why was the stone rolled away?” Well, the stone was not rolled away for Him to come out. The stone was rolled away so that we could look in. It was rolled away so that the empty tomb could be visible to all. The empty tomb is the greatest evidence of the resurrection of Jesus.

 

o Critics have tried to explain it away, and they have not been able to. The empty tomb still stands, as evidence to all that Jesus is not dead. He is alive today.

 

 

1 Corinthians 15:3-8 ESV

 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. 8 Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.

 

1 Corinthians 15 42-44 (ESV)

42 So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. 43 It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
