Easter at Abundant Life 2022

Jesus is the resurrection and the life, but what does that mean? It means God takes what is dead and makes it alive. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26) Jesus, having all authority, is the only One with the power of resurrection. The story of Lazarus’ death and resurrection is a magnificent display of Jesus’ authority. In John 11, Jesus proved He was the Anointed One, the Son of God. This was His last miracle before He went to the cross to be the resurrection and the life for those who believe. He rose Lazarus FROM the grave before He headed TO the grave. But what does this mean for you? “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”—Romans 6:23 Lazarus is a picture of us. We are dead in our transgressions and sin, but Jesus’ death covers us so that we can be made alive! Discover your story in the story of Lazarus. It is time to be made alive and be free from the wages of sin! There is one critical question you must answer… Do you believe this?
