Resurrection Sunday

But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2‬:‭9‬ ESV)

When you look at other religions you will find that all of their “leaders” have died and are dead. A lot of people acknowledge that Jesus died for all of our sins, but it’s important not to forget that He rose again. We serve a God that is alive and at work in the lives of each and everyone of us. We often get caught up and dwell on the things we’ve done in the past but God wants us to think about our future in Him. Anything we’ve done and could possibly do He’s already taken care of that. If we could just leave all of that behind and press on towards Jesus He has something stored up for us that we can’t even fathom. Pastor Patrick Coats said, “Christianity is not about a book of rules to live by. It’s about a loving God and savior named Jesus Christ that displayed the greatest act of love for you and me.” The joy is found in knowing that Him dying was not the end for us, when He rose He gave us the opportunity to have eternal life through Him. “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭16-17‬ ESV)
