A Never Ending Story

Today my wife and I worshipped with her parents at First Lutheran in Onalaska, Wisconsin.  Pastor Jason's sermon focused on how Christ's resurrection has given us a never ending story.  Our minds cannot comprehend a story that doesn't end, but that's what we've been given in the resurrection.  Christ's death defeated death.  Christ's resurrection bought us life that never ends.

"On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.  They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  While they were wondering about this, two men in clothes that gleamed like lightening stood beside them.  In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here; He has risen!"  Luke 24:1-6a

We do not worship a dead man; we worship a risen, reigning, living man who is God.  The One we worship not only is living, but He came to give us life... eternal life!

"... I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."  John 10:10b

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."  John 3:16

He is risen!  He lives and we live with Him and will live with Him forever!  Happy Easter, think about the endless story Jesus has purchased for you, today.
