Easter Series - RISE: This Changes Everything
Have you ever noticed that some things change everything?
For decades nothing was permitted to be posted on the front of our (Art & Rhonda's) refrigerator at home. No magnets. No pictures. No NFL logos. No witty sayings. The rules were: Nothing posted on the front, only on the side.
Then something happened . . . Our granddaughter Mattie changed everything! The rules changed. Posted on our refrigerator are Mattie’s pictures and artwork. Everything Mattie creates goes on the front of our refrigerator!
Like I said, “Some things change everything!”
For centuries -- prior to Jesus’ ministry -- it was thought that spiritual life was all about following the “rules” in order to be connected with God. Then Jesus changed everything when he said, “I have come that you might have [resurrected spiritual] life and that life to the full.” Spiritual life was now no longer about what we practice, but about a person.
That one statement of Jesus’ changed everything, and the world has been adjusting to it for over two thousand years.
The|rock’s Easter’s Series entitled,"RISE," is designed to explain why the resurrection changes everything in life -- why it changes our personal lives, why it changes the purpose of our existence, and why it changes what the world can hope in . . . everyday.
It all begins Easter Sunday morning, April 1st, at 10:00 a.m. Be sure to invite your friends and family and see just how God can change everything!
