BECAUSE OF CALVARY:
Future Worth Sharing -RESURRECTION
FOCAL PASSAGE... I Corinthians 15:12-19 12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 15 More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. 19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.
THE RESURRECTION DEMONSTRATED . . .
OUR SINS HAVE BEEN TRULY FORGIVEN
1. THE REALITY OF THE RESURRECTION
2. VALIDATION OF FORGIVENESS
THERE IS LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE
Job 14:14a (KJV)... If a man dies, shall he live again?
John 14:1- 6 (KJV)
RESTORATION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE FAILED
John 21:1-17 (KJV)
LIVE IT OUT
> What is keeping you from allowing Jesus to forgive your sin?
> What assurance do you have of having eternal life after you die?
> What failure do you need to give to the resurrected Lord this morning and begin to serve Him?
