Resurrection Sunday (Matthew 28:1-10) - 4/17/22

INTRO:

  • Resurrection Sunday is upon us!

  • Friday at our luncheon we consider Jesus’ words on the cross… IT IS FINISHED John 19:30

  • He completed the task prophesied in the OT. Isaiah 53:1-12

  • He competed the task. He made all things NEW. Rev 21:5 (already and not yet)

  • That is great news for us today. To have a relationship with Christ makes ALL THINGS NEW. WE BECOME AND LIVE A NEW CREATIONS.

  • Let us consider the great truths from the events of His glorious resurrection.

  • Easter Sunday is not an event… it is all about a personal relationship

  • A relationship that offers… Rest, Forgiveness, Victory, Assurance, and Satisfaction


REST


First day of the week – v. 1

  • Lord’s Day. (Friday night, Saturday, Sunday morning – 3 days)

  • Sabbath was a day of rest after the finished work of the OT. CREATION

  • Lord’s Day is the finished work of the NT. NEW CREATION

  • Sabbath Rest was a temporary… Jesus is a permanent rest

  • Hebrews 4:9-11


FORGIVENESS


Mary Magdalene – v. 1

  • Much indebted to Christ for the forgiveness of sin.

  • She was so devoted to her REDEEMER

  • THIS IS MISSING TODAY. WE THINK SO LITTLE OF OUR SAVIOR BECAUSE WE THINK SO LITTLE OF OUR SIN.



VICTORY


Earthquake – v. 2

  • At his crucifixion Matt. 27:51

  • At his resurrection (the aftershock!)

  • It points to the supernatural, the power

  • IT IS FINISHED. Nothing else needs to be done.

  • FAITH IS THE VICTORY.


ASSURANCE


The Angle and the Stone – v. 2

  • Lazarus stone was rolled way by man. Jesus’s stone was rolled away by God/angels.

  • Lazarus stone was rolled away so he could come out. Jesus stone was rolled away so they could look in

  • Do not fear

  • He has risen

  • Come and see

  • Grave clothes not in disarray (not taken)

  • The language conveys that they were still in the form of a body. No unwrapping.

  • LAZARUS NEEDED HELP WITH HIS GRAVE CLOTHS, JESUS DID NOT.

  • Go and tell


SATISFACTION


The Words from Christ – v.9

  • Greetings “JOY TO YOU”

  • And they worship Him

  • JOYFUL WORSHIP
