This message is from 1 Peter 1:3. For nearly 2,000 years Christians have been celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. This sermon covers Jesus' death on the cross, His resurrection, and the hope that every Christian can have.
The Sunday before Jesus' crucifixion He rides into Jerusalem knowing the dark hour that is ahead of Him. He is welcomed by a celebrating crowd of discouraged Jews who hope that He will rise up and be their king. What will it take and what does it look like for Jesus to be our King?
In Ephesians 1:9-10 we see that God's plan is to establish Jesus as the unifying head of all things in heaven and earth. As we apply this message there is reason to praise God for His grace as well as reflect on direction of our own lives. Are we living by faith under the headship of Jesus? What does that look like?
