The Messiah’s Ministry: Life Over Death

Matthew 28:1-10

Audio of April 20, 2014 sermon

One of the best privileges of being a minister is seeing new life at the altar; bride & groom becoming one; mourning families realizing their loved one is with Jesus; watching the face of a baby as she’s baptized and the family’s response – coming to the altar is a recognition that we aren’t alone, that God works with us to help us recognize that we are NOT Him!

An “Altared” Life Engages

* God’s Work in Our Sorrow
1-4 Dealing with the unexpected
v1 went to look at the Tomb
v2 earth-shaking effects will happen
v3/4 some can’t handle God’s work

* Our Work in God’s Scenario
5-7 Responding to the Master’s Plan
v5 remember: do not be afraid
v6 investigate: come and see
v7 share: go and tell

* Our Walk with God’s Savior
8-10 Living with a new nature
v8 fill with joy
v9 come to worship
v10 expect to see

Jesus’ life and teaching shows us the character of God and the nature of His Kingdom; Jesus’ death on the cross paid the ultimate price for our sin; Jesus’ Resurrection means that we, like Christ, have NEW LIFE that will last forever! What will you experience as you walk with Jesus?
