Jesus Raised

Jesus was crucified but it wasn’t the end of the story.

He was surrounded by the darkness of evil, but His light overcame that darkness.

He was laid into the tomb like the prison of sin on the human race, but it couldn’t hold Him as He broke free.

He endured that great fear of humanity – death – but He destroyed its powerful sting with resurrection life.

It looked like the end, but it wasn’t the end of the story.

One thought on “Jesus Raised

  1. Thank you for the inspired message on Easter. Jesus is the provider of all New Life and nothing is hopeless when we depend on Him. God’s Word was a blessing to many this weekend and the Resurrection is the reason we all have hope and can look forward to new beginnings. May His light continue to shine into this dark world through the ministries of Eastbrook and through the lives of His followers.
