EASTER

 

If you were to visit the Garden Tomb, the burial place of Jesus in Jerusalem, you would find what everyone has found – it’s empty.  The message of Easter is that Jesus’ tomb is empty and He has been resurrected. But this Easter at FBC, even though we know the tomb is empty, we are going to Look Again.  Perhaps the first time ,we just saw that – a simple, empty tomb. But when we take another look, we can see the Person of Jesus – a risen and living Savior.  If you Look Again, you can see Him. Whoever you are and wherever you are . . .

If you are not sure about Who Jesus is—or if He even matters, Look Again and discover that seeing is truly believing: Finally the other disciple . . . also went inside the tomb. He saw and believed (John 20:8). If like so many, you believe, but you wonder if there’s life beyond the stress of the routines and deadlines, Look Again and find the life Jesus offers:  . . . I have come that they may have life and life abundant (John 10:10).  And If you are a follower of Jesus and yet you long for more, Look Again and see the His life Mission that He invites you to join: “Come follow Me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people” (Matthew 4:19).

The empty tomb is a now historical place and anyone can see it; but the Person of Jesus is a risen and living Savior Who is waiting to meet you.  Look Again and you’ll see Him.  We’ll see you Easter Sunday at FBC!
