The Tomb Evader

The Tomb Evader
Broke death’s seal
And walked out alive.
Happy Resurrection Day!

One more Easter sermon,
Online or in person,
Won’t do you much good
If you won’t follow and obey the risen Jesus!

If Jesus is really alive, you don’t have to attend church to spend time with Him. If Jesus is really alive, search Him out and get to know Him for yourself. To say that you believe that Jesus rose, but ignore His presence in the now, misses the point.

Easter is Resurrection Anniversary. It celebrates Jesus rising from the dead almost 2,000 years ago and His being still available to us today! Jesus’ resurrection began a worldwide movement (not an institutional religion) of humans with hearts aflame, who met and followed Him.

Easter doesn’t end. The resurrection of Jesus is eternal. He said, “I am with you always.”

Honoring and worshipping a crucified man, threatened the Roman hierarchy and eventually ended Emperor worship. “Jesus is Lord,” not the state — not any human government.

Our faith should never be buried in a tomb, hidden behind a stone, and wrapped up in grave clothes. Jesus said: “Shout it from the housetops!”

You don’t need another talk about how Jesus walked out of the tomb to live forever. Simply follow and obey Him!

Easter Irony: By God’s choice, Jesus survived the tomb. By human choice, millions don’t survive the womb.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
