Jesus: Who then is This? #6

Matthew 28
  • If Jesus death was the end of the story, there is nothing really special about his life.
If Jesus Rose from the Dead...
  • I don't have to be afraid of sickness or death.
  • I can trust God even when things seem impossible.
  • I can pray BIG prayers because God can do anything.
  • I know that sin and the devil are defeated and Jesus wins.
  • I know that I will be in heaven with Jesus someday.
Good News Because of the Resurrection...1 Corinthians 15:16-20
  • If Jesus did not rise again, it means we are still in our sins.
Final Enemy...The Bible calls death the final enemy.
  • Jesus conquered this final enemy when he was brought back to life in the resurrection.
  • Romans 5:21
Colossians 3:1-11
  • Our superpower is the ability to live free from the power of sin that affects the rest of the world.
  • You don't base your obedience on anything other than the finished work of Jesus.
Seated? Sitting is the position of ruling.
  • If we centered our life around the reality that Jesus is sitting in heave, it would affect how we live every day of the week.
  • God is telling us to sit down...when we obeyed Jesus and were born again, we were called to rest in his finished work.
Truth... God sees imperfections in me that I don' even see, and he is not stressed about it.
  • We get in a hurry to make ourselves better because we think that as soon as we do, God will love us more.
  • God will never love us more than he does right now.
Our Fight... against sin is good and right.
  • BUT we are not fighting to be forgiven...we already are in Christ...we are just learning to live that way!
A new way to be human... I have a new nature and it mirrors the God who created me.
  • Sins are real...but they do not define us.
  • The real me is the righteous me, and that is more real than sin could ever be.
Who Then is This? Jesus... the resurrection and the life.
