Looking for Jesus - Easter Sermon

Looking for Jesus - Easter Sermon

March 31, 2024

Mark 16:1-8


You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified.
He has been raised; he is not here.

from Mark 16:6


The women went to where Jesus' body had been placed, expecting to finish preparing his dead body for burial.

The great news of Easter is not that their expectations were met but rather that Jesus was not dead like they expected but had risen from the dead.

The good news of the Gospel isn't found in God meeting our expectations but shattering them, revealing far more than anything we could ask or imagine - then using us to reveal the news of the risen Christ to others.

He is risen!
He is risen indeed!
