On Easter Sunday at GGNaz, we had a special celebration service with music from our choir, our kids and our worship team. Pastor Jim spent a few minutes in this brief sermon proclaiming the truth and power of the resurrection.
Down through the centuries, some have claimed that Jesus’ death on the cross was nothing more than a criminal’s execution… mistaken perhaps… but then innocent people have been executed before. For some, this is nothing more than a tiny blip on the screen of history to be ignored or perhaps to be studied along with other ancient stories that may or may not be true.
Our purpose on Easter Sunday morning is not to examine the pros and cons of these arguments and claims, or to defend the claims of the Christian faith by logical argument. Rather, we’re reminded that no one has ever been able to effectively discount in any way the truth and validity of these two essential truths of the Christian faith.
1. Jesus died for the sins of the world!
2. Jesus was raised from the dead and is alive forever more!
Where is the proof?
The proof is to be found, very simply, in the transformed lives of millions of people down through the centuries… people who have not argued or debated the pros and cons of the Christian faith, but people who have simply testified in their own personal way to the saving grace and redemptive love of the Lord Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for their sins and who conquered death on that first Easter morning so they could experience eternal life… life that begins at the point of belief.
