Proclaiming the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

  • The Bible reveals Jesus Christ and His Gospel.
  • Man is a sinner and in need of a savior.
  • The Pharisees tried to earn their own righteousness by trying to keep the Law.
  • Christ condemned the Pharisees for trying to do this
  • Man (including the Pharisees) has failed to keep the law
  • The Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John reveal who Jesus Christ is
  • The Law tells us to do something.
  • The Gospel says its done for you by Christ.
  • That’s Good News!

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is Good News!

Jesus left Heaven to be born of the Virgin Mary…..

He lived a sinless life….

But He loved sinners like you and me…..

and He would hang around with them and eat with them…..

and share stories about His Good News!….

He even healed the sick, cast out demons and raised the dead….

if He were here today with us He would be doing the same things…..

He loved the sinners and wanted them to be set free……

He came to save His people from their sins….

But some wanted to shut Him up and even kill Him…….so

He was brutally beaten…..

crucified……

died…..

buried….

and then …..He rose from the dead……

He is alive…….and He took the keys of Hades and of Death…..

He has victory over Satan….

and today Christ is at the right hand of God in Heaven……

interceding …….for you…..

he did all of that and continues to intercede for you ……

because He loves you more than you can imagine……

He shed His blood so that you could be set free from the bondages of sin….

His blood blots out and completely erases all your sins….

When you have faith in Christ and His Gospel……(what He has done for you…).
You become the righteousness of God in Christ…….

You can’t become righteous by keeping the Law……

The Pharisees couldn’t and we can’t……

We become the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus by accepting the fact …….having faith…….that Jesus obeyed the law perfectly for us…..

God is merciful to us……God’s Grace gives us unmerited favor…….

And I receive this favor by faith….

I believe and trust that all my sins are forgiven…..

That is Good News!…….

This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ…….

This allows us to come before God without any condemnation…….

So you can come boldly before the Throne of Grace…..

because of what Jesus has done…..

and know that you have favor because you come in the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus with your requests to God…….who is your Heavenly Father……

You come like a little child to your Father…..and He hears you……

Let’s turn to John 4: 10

Living Water…..

Every hungry and thirsty heart tonight will receive living waters

Let’s turn to John 7: 38

Believe in Him and out of your heart will flow rivers of living waters…..

When we trust in Jesus we receive forgiveness of sin, sanctification of our spirit, soul and body and the gift of the Holy Spirit…..

Let’s turn to Isaiah 53: 4-5

So we receive healing, health, salvation, joy and life…..everything in Jesus…..

He’s done it all for you….

Let’s take Jesus at His Word……..

Salvation is not in mountains or church buildings…….but in God…..

Let’s turn to John 4: 21-24

According to John 16:13…the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth…..

Let us honor the Holy Spirit….

for Jesus sent Him to teach and lead us into all truth….

Let us honor the Blood of Jesus……
and what Jesus did for us because of His great love for us……
Tonight we have proclaimed the Resurrection of JESUS CHRIST…..

He is alive!

Remember:

The Gospel says its done for you by Christ….

When you have Faith in Christ and His Gospel….

You become the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus….

There is no condemnation……

Your sins are forgiven…..

You have unmerited Favor…..Grace…..

You can come boldly to the Throne of Grace…..
The following verses are after Peter finished preaching in Acts 2

Let’s turn to Acts 2: 36 – 39
Is there anyone here that wants to do that?

Repent…….be baptized in the Name of Jesus for the remission of your sins……

and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit….

How can we minister to you tonight……
