This message is entitled, “Celebrating The Hope Easter Brings.” For many, hope is in short supply in these times. The economic recovery is not happening fast enough and it is a struggle to live.
Peter, the disciple of Jesus who recognized Him as the Christ, or Messiah… and soon after that denied even knowing who Jesus is three times in the same night… wrote this about Jesus in 1 Peter 1:3 (NIV)…
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
Because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, it says, “He has given us a new birth into a living hope.” What is this living hope we now have, that only the Resurrection of Jesus Christ gives us?
I intend to answer that question by sharing the five things our living hope includes. I promise, your friends will hear the “good news” of hope and you will be encouraged.
Invite your family, friends, and co-workers to one of our weekend services. These services include tomorrow’s Good Friday services at 5:30 and 7:00pm and then the Easter Sunday Celebrations at 8:15, 9:30, and 11:00am.
May God bless your celebration of Easter 2014! He Is Risen… He Is Risen Indeed!
