Medieval explorers searched for the fountain of youth but never found it. Even scientists today are trying to find the remedy to physical death. Cryogenicists are scientists who are freezing people’s bodies in hopes that in the future they’ll find a cure, unfreeze and heal them. Even though we don’t know what exactly it is like, most people believe that there is life after death. However, no one is trying to figure out how to bring dead people back to life. It’s like we know that’s impossible. It’s far more plausible to try and figure out the cure to disease and the dying process.
But what if the impossible were plausible? What do you think? Do you think there is life after death? Do you think a dead person can come back to life one hour after they’re pronounced dead? How about 24 hours later? Two days later? Four days later after the body is decomposing?
That is what Easter is about! Jesus was pronounced D-O-A…dead-on-arrival. Jesus was killed on a cross. Pronounced dead. Put into a tomb. And his body was in that tomb for three days. So, I’m inviting us to think about the impossible becoming possible.
We are in a series called I AM: Astonishing Claims of Christ. On Easter weekend, we’ll consider the seventh and last astonishing claim that is perfect for Easter. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live.” (John 11:25)
Are you looking for a personal relationship with God? Do you have a friend who has hit some huge challenges or life threatening problems? Invite him or her to come with you to one of our weekend services. They will be encouraged through our time of worship and the riveting story of God’s ability to make the impossible plausible! He did it 2,000 years ago and He is still doing it today. See you this Easter!
