Luke 24:1-6a (ESV) But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.  2  And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,  3  but when they went in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  4  While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.  5  And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?  6  He is not here but has risen.

What is Easter?

  1. Easter is God’s Great Reconciliation!
  2. Easter is Death being Conquered by the Greatest of all Power!
  3. Easter is for the Hopeless!
  4. Easter is Proof of God’s Love!

Hebrews 11:1 (ESV) Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Christmas was HOPE born,
the Crucifixion was HOPE realized,
and EASTER is HOPE secured!
