Easter: Anchor of Hope (9:00 am)

What if… What if Easter never happened?

What if Jesus was still dead?

1 Peter 1:3-9

1. Because of Easter, believers have new life that brings living hope.

2. Because of Easter, believers have assurance of a better future.

3. Because of Easter, believers are sustained by the certainty of their salvation.

If you are a believer, you have so much that gives you hope!
Because of Easter… you have:

a new birth into an awesome family
a living hope of greater things
an assurance of a better future
the certainty of your salvation

This is as close to Hell as you will ever get… this is as bad as it gets, in this life! Are you living “Because of Easter”? Are you living as if Jesus is alive?

The living Christ can make a difference in your everyday life as you take hold of the inheritance that Jesus has provided for you.

If you are an unbeliever… someone who has yet to commit your life to Jesus, then I ask you, what hope is there? If the Bible is true, then you have not yet received your living hope… all you have is a dead, doubtful hope… wishful thinking. This is as close to Heaven as you will ever get… but t doesn’t have to be that way – “Because of Easter!”

You can be born again to a living hope of greater things! Will you trust Him today?
