Have you seen that Christ has gone before you, that there's no reason to fear?
Do we Christians get our most important holy days confused with minor holidays?
A resurrected life is a new life.
Easter recognizes that our Savior rose from the dead, thereby making resurrection possible for us, too.
The resurrection indeed happened, thereby changing the fate of all who believe.
Death is final, but Christ's resurrection is eternal.
Have you ever considered what you fear most? Most would say public speaking, but perhaps in broader terms, it's the matters of life and death themselves.
If Christ is not raised, the death of Christ on the cross was without redemption. The ramification of a worthless faith is that you remain in your sins. If there is no resurrection, we should leave the church and go to the synagogue and eat the Seder meal. If Christ is not raised, then up is down and down is up. If Christ is not raised, right is wrong and wrong is right. If Christ is not raised, north is south and south is north.
Jesus claims to be the resurrection and the life. Each of us is called to respond. This Easter sermon examines some of the big questions about God with an eye toward helping us believe.
