Celebrate Easter Everyday???

April 6, 2015 0 By Lori

I want to share parts of the message we heard yesterday in church….

What does Easter mean?

  • Jesus did exactly what He claimed to do!  ….   He died on the cross for our sins, He was buried and He rose again – He foretold of these things many times.
  • Jesus is what He claimed to be!  ….   “I and the Father are One!”
  • Jesus has what He claimed to have!  ….   Power over death!

Why does Easter matter?

  • Your sins can be wiped away today!  …   Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved!
  • Your future destiny can be secure today!   …   “I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life!”
  • Your present life can be transformed today!   …   “I can do ALL things, thru Christ who gives me strength!”

The evidence is there that Jesus rose from the grave…

1 Corinthians 15:3-11  3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. 11 Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.
