Sunday Message: What the Resurrection of Jesus Means to You

When the disciples saw their Lord crucified on the cross, their hopes and dreams were dashed. But where they saw an ending, God brought a new beginning. In this Sunday morning episode, Pastor Greg Laurie explores the defining event of our faith. Find out “What the Resurrection of Jesus Means to You” in this message. It’s the finale of our series, The Gospel for Busy People. Notes: The cross was Jesus’ goal and destination from the very beginning; and it happened exactly as Jesus had predicted. The crucifixion and resurrection were God’s well-thought-out plan. God takes our endings and turns them into new beginnings. Read: Mark 16:1–8. “So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy.” —Matthew 28:8 If Jesus were not God, He would have never allowed worship. Read: John 20:11–17. Jesus made many post-resurrection appearances.  1. The resurrection of Jesus assures me that I am accepted by God.  There is no forgiveness from balancing records, but from canceling them. 2. The resurrection of Jesus assures me that I have all the power I need to live the Christian life. 3. The resurrection of Jesus assures me that I too will live forever in Heaven. The tomb is not an entrance to death, but to life! The moment we take our last breath on Earth, we take our first breath in Heaven. 4. The resurrection of Jesus assures me that I will receive a new body just like His. You will still be you in Heaven. 5. Because of Jesus’ resurrection, we will have resurrected relationships. Because Jesus died and rose there are many blessings that have come. 6. Because Jesus died and rose from the dead, we need to tell others.  The Great Commission: These words are a command. These words were not directed merely to the original twelve disciples.  They are for every follower and disciple of Jesus Christ.
