In today’s Sunday morning episode, you can discover what Easter means to you. Listen for a hope-filled gospel message from Pastor Greg Laurie from Luke 23 and John 20. Because of Easter, we have all God's promises! Notes Easter is the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34) Forgiven people should be forgiving people. “The first to apologize is the bravest, the first to forgive is the strongest, and the first to forget is the happiest.” “Truly, truly I say to you today you will be with Me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43). “Woman, behold your son.” “Son, behold your mother” (John 19:26). “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Mark 15:33–34). At the cross, even God the Father turned His face away from God the Son; because God, in all His holiness could not look at sin. Jesus entered the darkness that we might walk in the light. “I thirst!” “It is finished!” or “Tetelestai!” “Into Your hands I commit My spirit” (Luke 23:46). On the cross, Jesus addressed the Father at the beginning, middle, and end. We should do the same in life. 1. The resurrection of Jesus assures me that I am accepted by God. “On the cross, God treated Jesus as if he had lived your life, so that He could treat you as if you had lived His life.” 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. At the cross, Jesus took the stinger out of death. 4. The resurrection of Jesus assures me that I will receive a new body just like His. These are all promises for the Christian.
