Up From The Grave He Arose!

Up From The Grave He Arose! Sermon Audio Here

Isaiah 25:6-9; John 20:19-31

For many children, the highlight of Easter morning is the Easter Basket. For many parents, the choices on what to put IN the Easter Basket are overwhelming. While retailers put pastel colored candy and toys front and center, other voices advocate for different choices: art supplies instead of candy; vegan alternatives to eggs; even replacing the basket itself with a backpack or canvas storage container.

All of this attention on what’s in the Easter basket begs the question:

What Does God Give Us on Easter?

The Promise of Restoration ~ Isa. 25:6-9

  • v7 we are shrouded- covering of death
  • v8 we WILL be restored- tears wiped away
  • v9 let us rejoice- our intentional response

The Peace in Reception ~ John 20:19-23

  • v19 we can choose to live in fear
  • v20 we can choose to look at the Lord instead
  • v21/22/23 we can have peace when we receive what Jesus gives

The Principle of Reliance ~ John 20:24-31

  • v24/25 we tend to rely on ourselves
  • v26/27 Jesus knows our tendency for self-reliance
  • v28/29 reliance upon God is a blessing
  • v30/31 reliance upon God gives us life-removes the shroud

Are you living under a shroud? Is your self-reliance keeping you from life? Jesus rolled away the stone and left His shroud behind; He can do it for YOU, too!
