Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017
Pastor Steve Brown
What do you hope for after you die? Our future resurrection remains a hope. All of us have yet to see our resurrection. This sermon will use the account of the thief on the cross who put his hope in Jesus to teach that real hope comes from a real God who really desires to spend eternity with us. In the physical resurrection of Jesus, God has given us a physical testimony that our hope for eternal life is a real hope. The resurrection of Jesus gives us the assurance of eternal life with God.
Next Step: Make your future resurrection a more real hope to you by picturing yourself in heaven and counting on it happening. You can do that because Jesus made it a real hope when he rose from the dead. Come again next Sunday to learn how you can have a more confident faith.
