Easter Sunday – 3 Days to Hope

Pastor Jason Burns

April 12, 2020

Romans 8:11 NLT // “The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.”

  • You don’t have to just celebrate Easter, you can experience Easter!
  • The resurrection of Jesus gives you the power to close the gap between the life you are living and could live.

Why 3 Days?

1 Peter 2:21 MSG // This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.

Friday: The Day of Pain

Types of Pain:

  • Physical Pain
  • Emotional Pain
  • Relational Pain

Romans 8:28 // And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

  • There is no pain that His purpose cannot redeem.

Saturday: The Day of Confusion

When we’re confused:

  • We want answers.
  • We begin to doubt.
  • We give up.
  • We feel alone.
  • There is no confusion that His presence cannot calm.

Sunday: The Day of Resurrection.

John 11:25-26 // “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

  • There is no death that His power cannot resurrect.

Philippians 3:10-11 NLT // I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I want to suffer with himsharing in his death, so that one way or another I will experience the resurrection from the dead!
