Power and Purpose of the Resurrection

3

We celebrate the resurrection of Christ every year. It is a wonderful celebration and it is a necessary celebration. We come together and we focus our spiritual attention on what God has done for us. We come and we sing songs about it. In know it was the blood, I know it was the blood, I know it was the blood for me… We come and take communion in remembrance of the blood shed and the body broken for us. But is there something in our celebration that we miss. Is there something that we have overlooked or forgotten when it comes to this date. Is there something behind the theology of the cross and resurrection that was unfolding in the Word of God that we have glossed over that would be more than just a celebration to us but would give us a revelation that would move us behind a period of annual thought and celebration but would be something that would make living here in this wretched world better. We must celebrate and we will. We must be thankful and we will, but today we are also going to look at the theology behind the lead up to this place of his death burial and resurrection. As we look at the lead up to this momentous place we are going to be able to clearly see not only what kind of God we serve, but we will also be able to take from that to be able to walk in different place of authority in our own lives. In other words, I am going to show you God and His plan in scripture that is going to open your eyes for you to be able to say I am more than conqueror through Him who have loved us.
