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.
