Pastor Mike’s Minute Message: “And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless.” (1 Corinthians 15:14 NLT)
As the San Francisco 49’s were fighting for a spot in the 2012 NFC Championship Game, they faced a grinder with the intimidating New Orleans Saints. But to win against the southern powerhouse, they developed a basis strategy: focus their passing game against Saints safety, Roman Harper, who tended to get caught flat-footed in the end zone. It paid off with a 36-32 victory.
Christianity has a basis for its belief system: The resurrection of Jesus. Many world and religious leaders have lived and died, but none ever came back from the grave. To have victory over death means victory over anything! What could be harder than that? And that’s just what Jesus did!
As you celebrate Jesus’ ultimate victory, realize that whatever you face will be child’s play in His hands. With a Risen Savior at your side, you are safer than you could ever imagine! You are loved today! Happy Easter!
