Easter Sermonette: Luke 24 : 5 – Pastor David Schierenbeck
Our Easter Profession Of Faith
I believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of Man, Lord of lords and Savior of our fallen world. I believe He came on a mission of salvation, lived a holy life as my Law-fulfilling Substitute, was crucified at the hands of sinful men, and endured the punishment of God-forsakenness and hell at the hands of a just God. He died and was buried.
And I believe that on the third day Jesus rose bodily from the dead, exactly as it had been prophesied and as He Himself had promised. Attested to by the inspired Scriptures and by many witnesses, Jesus’ resurrection verifies that He is God’s Son, that His salvation work “is finished”, and that He has triumphed over the last great enemy – death.
And in rising and conquering death, Christ has become the first-fruit of all who sleep in Him. Because He rose, I and all who look to Him in faith shall one day rise. Because He lives, I too shall live. For He has promised me: “I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in Me will live, even though he dies. And whoever lives and believes in Me will never die.” These Easter promises fill my heart with joy, thanksgiving, confidence and certain hope. This is most certainly true!
