BOTTOM LINE:   EASTER:  The Power to Change Your Life!

QUESTION:  What is Different in Our LIfe Because Jesus Is Alive?

 

DOWNLOAD:

As Christians, we believe EASTER is the Focal Point of History!

Picture a TIMELINE, and it starts w/ CREATION.  There’s a CROSS in the middle, and all of ETERNITY is on this end.  The Bible tells us that every moment from Creation on was leading up to the CROSS as a part of God’s eternal plan, and that every moment since is lived in the light of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection.

Because Jesus is ALIVE …

#1 … We Can Experience LOVE that Relieves our DOUBTS!

#2 … We Can Experience God’s GRACE for our FAILURES!

#3 … We Can Experience the COURAGE that Conquers our FEARS!

#4 We Can Experience LIFE that Overcomes DEATH!

#5 We Can Experience the PURPOSE that Replaces our EMPTINESS!

 

 

APPLICATION:

WHAT DO WE DO?

IF … EASTER was truly this Focal Point of History, as we talked about a few minutes ago, [a TIMELINE … and it starts w/ CREATION … there’s a CROSS in the middle … an all of ETERNITY is on this end] every moment from Creation on was leading up to the CROSS as a part of God’s Eternal Plan, and that every moment since is lived in the light of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection.

IF that’s true … THEN we have this choice to make:

Either … we BELIEVE that Jesus was the Messiah … God’s Promise for Salvation, and a Bridge for us to be Restored and Forgiven and back into a Righteous Standing and Relationship w/ God.

OR … we Dismiss Jesus and Reject His claims!
