Resurrection for ALL!

1 Corinthians 15:1-10

2 Corinthians 5:15, "and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again."

The stories of the Gospels are wonderful – the miracles amazing – the teachings and parables deep and provoking – but above all the Jesus ever did or said stands the Resurrection. If Jesus is raise then we have a new meaning, new motivation to live – new life! If Jesus died only we would have a great teacher's legacy – a lifetime of kindness to imitate – a model for sacrifice. But those we find throughout history in other – in Jesus we find loving life – the teachings of God – the offering of Himself in death AND the Resurrection! All of it means something because of the empty tomb – none of it would mean anything with a dead body still resting in a grave.

Sunday we will take a look at how the Cross and the Resurrection changed many of the people who had been around Jesus – the followers, the Apostles, the enemies and even the later converts like us! Don't miss Easter's worship – Easter's message – Easter's hope! This is too good of a message to keep to ourselves – share this and invite some one to join you as we approach the empty tomb and review the earth shaking consequences of the Resurrection! A Resurrection for ALL!
