Easter 2017: Empty Tomb. New Beginnings.
The cross changes everything. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ gives our lives meaning. Without it, we are empty, just going through the motions. This Easter weekend, we are going to dig deep into the importance of the empty tomb. Not only did Jesus die, but he rose from the grave, conquering death. It’s easy to allow those familiar words to slip by but take time to sit in the real meaning behind it. Let it sink in. Jesus conquered death. Because of Him, we have LIFE. Jesus says in John 11:25-26,
“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.”
Whoever believes in Christ will have eternal life. Our God is the risen, One true God. May we gather together in worship to proclaim His victory and believe in the power of His death and resurrection, for the cross changes everything.
