Reflecting on the Most Recent Sermon
Sermon Series: Real Jesus Sermon Title: Real Death and Real Resurrection
Delivered On: April 1, 2018
He is not here; He has risen! ([bible]Luke 24:6[/bible])
Thank Jesus for coming to this earth, dying on the cross in your place, and bearing the full payment for your sins. Celebrate the reality that Jesus is risen, alive, and part of your life.
Pay Attention Christians know that Jesus not only rose from the dead, but He is still alive today! Take time this week to pay attention to where Jesus is present in your life and the world. Where do you feel the power of Jesus within you? Where do you see His grace? Where is His love alive? Seek to notice the presence of Jesus through the flow of your week. Then, give Him praise for being alive and near you.
