No one doubts that Jesus was a real person. He lived, walked, and pulled off some incredible things during His time on this earth. If He lived – it’s clear that He died. It’s what did or didn’t happen next that makes all the difference. Easter. The celebration of Jesus being risen from the dead. Conquering the grave. Defeating death. The most celebrated day on the Christian calendar. Does it matter?
Maybe. Maybe not.
If He isn’t who He said He was & is still dead – the answer is no. Not even a little bit.
If He is who He said He was & is alive – the answer is yes. It matters more than you can imagine.
The world is dark. Addiction, regret, and the crushing weight of constantly falling short are too much to bear. Peace is a mirage. Hope is lost. If Jesus is a fake, a phony, a fraud – it’s Game Over. Lights Out.
A dead Savior can’t save anyone. Not me. Not you.
But what if it’s true. What if Jesus pulled it off? What if addicts could find freedom? What if the hopeless found hope? What if burdens could be lifted? What if peace was offered? What if forgiveness became available? What if those far off could be brought near?
Does Easter matter? It does if it’s true.
If it’s true than your future can be greater than your past. Freedom is available. Peace is possible. Hope is still alive!
If Death couldn’t stop Him & The grave couldn’t hold Him – light can overtake the darkness. Because He lives – So Can WE! I am not talking about merely existing. Living a life that exceeds comprehension. It’s possible. If it’s true! Easter matters. More than we could imagine!
Easter at Freedom is this weekend and it’s a weekend I don’t want you & yours to miss! Invite & bring as many people as possible. Every person within the sound of my voice will hear a clear presentation of the good news of Jesus in a fresh and powerful way! Don’t miss this opportunity!
