MESSAGE
“JESUS IS ALIVE TODAY”
JESUS HAS RISEN, HE IS ALIVE, AND HOPEFULLY ALIVE IN YOUR
HEART TODAY. JESUS BEAT DEATH AND MADE IT SO THAT WE CAN
ALSO BE RESURRECTED AND LIVE WITH HIM IN HEAVEN WHEN IT IS
OUR TIME TO SHED THIS EARTHLY BODY AND TRADE IT IN ON A
NEW HEAVENLY BODY. ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS GIVE OUR LIFE TO
HIM AND BELIEVE.
I HAD A WORK FRIEND THAT WAS ALL EXCITED THIS WEEK, HE
TOLD ME OF HIM AND HIS WIFE’S PLANS FOR SATURDAY MORNING,
WE ARE GOING AND PICK OUT OUR TOMBSTONES AND PAY FOR
THEM AND HAVE THEM PLACED ON OUR BURIAL PLOTS WE HAVE
ALREADY AQUIRED. I SAID WELL GREAT I HOPE Y’ALL HAVE A
GOOD TIME AT THE MONUMENT STORE. I MEAN WHAT DO YOU
SAY, DO YOU PLAN TO USE THEM ANY TIME SOON? ARE ONE OR
BOTH OF YA’LL SICK. YOU KNOW I HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE
THOUGHTS OF DOING MY WILL AND DIVIDING WHAT LITTLE
MATERIAL THINGS I LEAVE ON THIS EARTH SO THAT THE TWO
DAUGHTERS AND GRAND KIDS DON’T FIGHT OVER WHO GETS MY
COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE TRACTOR PARTS, TOOLS, AND FISHING
EQUIPTMENT. AND TO BUY YOUR PLOTS AND HAVE YOUR
HEADSTONES DONE WITH EVERYTHING EXCEPT YOUR DAY YOU
TOOK YOUR LAST EARTHLY BREATH. THAT SPELLS FINAL YOUR
FINAL DAYS ON EARTH WITH THE PEOPLE AND THE THINGS YOU
LOVE. I STARTED THINKING ON THIS AFTER MY EXCITED FRIEND
FIRST TOLD ME OF HIS WEEKEND PLANS HE IS GOING SHOPPING
AND GOING TO PURCHASE HIS TOMBSTOMB AND WHAT TIMING HE
IS DOING IT ON THE SATURDAY BETWEEN GOOD FRIDAY WHEN
JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS AND TOOK ALL THE SINS OF THE
WORLD WITH HIM, AND MADE THE WAY FOR EACH OF US TO BE
FORGIVEN BY BELIEVING IN HIM AND OPENING THE ROAD TO
HEAVEN SO WE HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE AND THE DAY JESUS
ROSE FROM DEAD BRIGHT AND GLORIOUS IN A RESURECTED
BODY ALIVE. AFTER THINKING ABOUT JESUS AND THIS HOLY OF
WEEKENDS AND ABOUT MY FRIEND AND HIS TOMBSTONE
SHOPPING I HAVE COME TO A CONCLUTION, I’M READY TO GO
TAKE CARE OF MY FINAL BUSINESS I’M READY TO TAKE CARE OF
MY FINAL BUSINESS AND GO HEADSTONE SHOPPING MY SELF AND
I DON’T FEEL THAT THIS IS SUCH A FINAL THING ANYMORE AFTER
THINKING IT THROUGH, AND MY DAUGHTERS OR MY WIFE
WOULDN’T PUT ON MY STONE WHAT I WANT SINCE I’VE THOUGHT
ABOUT IT.
“I’M NOT HERE JUST DUST AND BONES ARE IN THIS
GRAVE, I’M GONE WITH JESUS AND WALKING
THROUGH ETERNITY”
RESURECTED JUST LIKE JESUS, WE MAY DIE PEACEFULLY IN OUR
SLEEP, WE MAY DIE A PAINFUL DEATH, BUT WE MUST HOLD ON WE
CAN EACH HAVE OUR OWN EASTER MORNING, RESURECTED!
RESURECTION IS IMPORTANT TO OUR BELIEFS, WHEN JESUS
ROSE FROM THE DEAD HEAVEN BROKE INTO OUR EARTHS
HISTORY WITH REDEMPTION FOR OUR SINS AND AN OPEN DOOR
TO HEAVEN FOR ETERNITY, THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS MADE
IT WHERE WE TO CAN BE RESURECTED AND BE ALIVE WITH JESUS,
THE RESURRECTION GIVES AUTHORITY TO THE CHRISTIAN
MESSAGE WITH THE PROCLAMATION THAT JESUS WAS RAISED
FROM THE DEAD, THE RESURRECTION GIVES MEANING TO THE
LORD’S SUPPER OUR REGULAR COMMUNION, THE RESURECTION
GIVES US HOPE IN TIMES OF TRADGY, FOR THE RESSURECTION
GIVES US HOPE IN THE FUTURE. GOD’S POWER THAT BROUGHT
JESUS BACK FROM THE DEAD IS AVAILABLE TO US SO THAT WE
CAN LIVE FOR HIM IN AN EVIL WORLD.
CHRISTIANS CAN LOOK VERY DIFFERENT FROM ONE ANOTHER,
AND THEY CAN HOLD WIDELY VARYING BELIEFSABOUT POLITICS,
LIFESTYLE, AND EVEN THEOLOGY. BUT ONE CENTRAL BEIEF
UNITIES AND INSPIRES ALL TRUE CHRISTIANS-JESUS ROSE
FROM THE DEAD AND IS ALIVE! AMEN
