Empty at Easter

A World without Easter
by James Merritt
1. We just concluded one of the most exciting and interesting series I think we have ever done, ever, called ''24.'' It was a fascinating study of the story of the last 24 hours in the life of Christ set in a 21st century setting to the format of the tv show ''24.'' Even though it made for a great story, great drama, great intrigue, and great mystery, nothing in that series would still tell you what is so distinct and what is so different about...

The Hope of Easter
by Ernest Easley
If there was ever a day that gives us hope .. it is resurrection Sunday! In fact ...that's why the church gathers week by week on Sunday .. the Lord's Day for worship, rather than on Saturday, the Sabbath: to celebrate and commemorate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ! In fact .. every Sunday is a celebration of the empty tomb! A celebration that of the empty tomb! A celebration that Jesus is alive! It's the empty tomb of Jesus that gives us HOPE! Hope in the here-in-now and hope in the here-after! And don't get the idea that the…

It's Not Over: An Easter Message of Hope
by Jeff Lynn
It’s no secret that today we are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Our intent today is not to try to prove it to you, because by virtue of you being here today, you have some sense of the importance of this day. This is a high and holy day for Christ-followers because the apostle Paul said that if Jesus wasn’t raised from the dead and brought to life, then we are still in our sin and the biggest fools of all in falling...
