Sermon About Ressurrection: Jesus is Live

 Sermon About Ressurrection: Jesus is Live

Jesus' resurrection changed everything about his life. It made him an example for us to follow.

Jesus was raised from the dead after he died on the cross. His death and resurrection were proof that God loves us and has power over evil.

The resurrection was foretold in the OT (Psa. 16:8-11)

We cannot be saved without the resurrection of Christ (Mk. 16:9; Mt. 28:19; 1 Cor. 1 Cor. 15:1ff; Eph. 1:7; Rom. 1:4; 4:25; 5:16-18; 6:3-5; 1 Pet. 1:3-5)

After Jesus rose from the dead, he appeared to his disciples and then to hundreds of others. He told them that he would soon leave them and go back to heaven. Then he ascended into heaven.

Consider the major world religions (Buddhism, Confucianism, Islam)

  • Which one has a savior who died for the sins of others? (Lk. 2:11; 1 Peter 3:18)
  • Which one has a central leading figure rise from the dead? (Matt. 28:1-6)

God has raised Jesus

  • Conquering death (Acts 2:22-24; Heb. 2:14-15)
  • Providing the ultimate proof of Sonship (Rom. 1:4)

1: Victory over Sin and Death

The resurrection of Jesus Christ stands as the ultimate triumph over sin and death. In His resurrection, Christ shattered the power of sin and conquered the grave, securing victory for all who believe (1 Corinthians 15:55-57). Through His sacrificial death and resurrection, Jesus offers us forgiveness, redemption, and eternal life.

His death was not the end of his story. 

  • The body was placed in a new tomb. (Matt 27:60)
  • The tomb was cut out of rock. (Matt 27:60)
  • A large stone covered the entrance. (Matt 27:60)
  • A Roman seal was placed on the stone. (Matt 27:66)
  • A Roman Guard was placed at the tomb. (Matt 27:65-66)

The tomb was inspected carefully. (John 20:3-8; John 20:11)

 In fact, it was just the beginning. Jesus’ resurrection changed everything about his earthly life. It made him a model for us to follow. We see evidence of this in the New Testament accounts of his appearances after his resurrection. (John 19:41, 2 Kings 13:21, NKJV)

He appeared to many people.

After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to more than 500 people. These appearances were recorded by eye witnesses who wrote down what happened. They included Mary Magdalene, Peter, John, James, and others. (Luke 24:4,  John 20:12, NKJV)

2: Confirmation of the Divinity of Christ

The resurrection serves as undeniable proof of the divinity of Jesus Christ. As the apostle Paul declares, Christ was "declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead" (Romans 1:4). The empty tomb testifies to the unparalleled authority and majesty of our risen Savior.

He showed his hands & side. Luke gives more details. Breathed on them…receive ye the Holy Spirit.” John is only writer to report this. Same promise made before death (Jno. 14, 15, 16)

Fulfilled on day of Pentecost

Met with disciples – on same day was raised from dead (Thomas was not there).

  • Eight days later met again (Thomas there).
  • Met them again at Sea of Tiberias (John 21) – “Third time” (v. 14)
  • Met again in Galilee (appointed before his death) – (Matt. 26:32; 28;7, 10, 16).
  • Jesus’ name by Josephus’ pen. Antiquities 18:3:3 reads as follows:

3: Assurance of Our Justification

In Christ's resurrection, we find assurance of our justification before God. His victory over sin and death secures our redemption and reconciliation with the Father (Romans 4:25). Through faith in Christ, we receive the gift of righteousness and stand justified in God's sight.

4: Promise of Our Own Resurrection

The resurrection of Jesus Christ offers the promise of our own resurrection. Just as Christ was raised from the dead, so too will all who are in Him experience resurrection to eternal life (1 Corinthians 15:20). The hope of our future resurrection fills us with confidence and assurance in the face of death.

5: Fulfillment of Scripture

The resurrection of Jesus fulfills the prophetic Scriptures, confirming God's faithfulness and sovereignty (Luke 24:44). Every detail of Christ's resurrection was foretold in the Old Testament, pointing to the divine plan of salvation through His death and resurrection.

6: Source of New Spiritual Life

Through Christ's resurrection, we are made alive spiritually. As the apostle Paul teaches, we are raised with Christ to newness of life (Colossians 3:1). His resurrection power enables us to live victoriously over sin and walk in the fullness of God's grace.

7: Called to a New Life

As recipients of Christ's resurrection, we are called to embrace a new life in Him. United with Christ in His death and resurrection, we are empowered to live transformed lives marked by holiness, obedience, and love (Romans 6:4).

8. He ascended into heaven and He will return again.

What does this mean? Well, he went up to heaven, where he was with God.  However, we have him the Holy Spirit. We also see him through the Bible in the our heart.

We can know the plan of salvation

It is as simple as 2+2=4

Mark 16:16

“He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

We know repentance & confession are required but it is a very simple plan.

This is the operation {work} of God (Col. 2:12), for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38). Raised to walk in newness of life (Rom. 6:3-5)

Entered into Christ (Gal. 3:26-27),  a new creation in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17)

Begotten by the word of God (1 Peter 1:23)


In conclusion, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of our faith and the source of our hope. Through His resurrection, we are assured of victory over sin and death, confirmed in the divinity of Christ, and justified before God. Let us cling to the promise of our own resurrection and live in the power of Christ's victory. May the reality of Christ's resurrection inspire us to walk in newness of life, proclaiming the good news of salvation to a world in need.
