A Believable Easter - message from Pastor Chris Russell on April 16, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana.
In life sometimes when we look at things more closely they are Unbelievable...for many people the Easter story is one of these events.
But consider the details and why they strengthen the reasons for truly believing it...
The gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John - Eyewitness accounts
James - the brother of Jesus who may have thought he was crazy till after he had risen from the dead and then writes one of the most powerful of the New Testament books.
Paul - he hated Christians...but because of the events of Easter becomes an extravagant follower of Jesus and writes the majority of the New Testament.
Jesus' ENEMIES had more confidence in the Jesus movement than Jesus' FOLLOWERS!
See, the religious leaders were worried that Jesus' followers were going to steal the body from the tomb and so had it guarded by the Romans. - but where were his followers? Scattered, hiding, running scared.
Just like everyone, we deal with this problem of sin, this problem of not being able to get back to God - but there is a solution:
Don't miss out any longer on your opportunity to truly experience the resurrection power!
