Hope in the Resurrection
Happy Resurrection Day!
The journey to hope in the resurrection
Life before hope Mark 16:1-3
-Dead- consumed with death
-they were bringing burial spices, covering up the stink
-Unsolved problems- “who will roll away the stone?”
Hope Discovered Mark 16:4-5
-God speaks to us (prayer, Bible, people, circumstances)
Hope Explained Mark 16:6-7
-Jesus is alive!
-Jesus died and rose back to life
We must put all our hope in the resurrection!
We must trust in the supernatural power of Jesus Christ
-Jesus conquered death- no one has raised themselves!
-Forensic evidence says Jesus really died
-We are all born spiritually dead!
The Bible says we are naturally bad
We need a spiritual resurrection, can’t save ourselves!
-Are you still trusting in things that cannot provide real hope?
Are you still dressing up death with the burial spices of
possessions, pleasure and power?
Are you still trying to cover up the stink of your dead life?
We must trust the historical reality of Jesus Christ
-The overwhelming evidence demands a verdict
-Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified- a real person
-He is risen- His body was gone, was never found
-Eyewitnesses declare the tomb is empty- women, disciples
Our faith in Jesus must have a beginning
-the moment we are born again spiritually
-the moment we pass from death to life
-the moment we are rescued from sin, death and hell
You can receive hope in Jesus Christ right now!
Admit you are a sinner
Believe Jesus died and rose again
Commit your lives to Jesus Christ
-Obey Christ’s commands
-A true follower of Christ wants to listen and obey Jesus
-baptism doesn’t save you, prove you are saved!
Declare your hope in Jesus Christ now!

B: Bible book
Many sermons in the St. Joe archive are machine-transcribed. St. Joe is presently transcribing its entire sermon library to render its content more easily accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing, those who speak English as a second language, and to make the sermon content searchable for everybody. While machine transcription makes this logistically and financially more viable, accuracy is sometimes sacrificed. St. Joe is gradually replacing machine transcription with human transcription as time and financial resources allow. Each sermon costs between $30 to $60 to transcribe. If you would like to help see the preached Word of God become accessible to more people, please consider an investment in the St. Joe ministry through the PayPal platform by sending funds to StJoeOnlineGiving@gmail.com, or click here.
