This week at Eastbrook Church, we launched into our new series “Moving Out!”, the fifth and final part of our series on the Gospel of John through the month of May. After Jesus rose alive in victory over sin and death, He appeared to some of His followers. When He met them, He called them out of their old life and into a new kind of life – a resurrection life. We see this in four distinct encounters Jesus had with:
- Mary Magdalene distressed by the empty tomb
- The disciples fearfully hiding in the upper room
- Thomas who finds Jesus in His doubts
- Peter after his failure who is now fishing again
How do we respond to the risen Jesus in our everyday lives? In what ways do we need to move out of our old life and into the resurrection life of Christ?
