I like epic movies! Brave Heart, Gladiator, and Glory. All epic war time dramas of people facing massive difficulties, challenges, and victories. They inspire me. In many ways they draw me into a narrative that internally I find myself walking in. In fact, life can be an 'epic' journey of challenges, callings, and celebrations.
The narrative of Easter is Epic! It is full of drama, that is real to life for Jesus and his followers. Then and now. The implications of how Jesus journeyed in the epic experiences of His life has personal implications for me as a follower of Him. His entrance into the passion of His mission to save lost people. The epic events of His death are sobering; and His epic victory over death in the resurrection, sets Jesus aside from all others as the way, the truth, and the life, that God demanded and people can follow.
I hope you will both take time this spring to investigate the Epic stories of Jesus, in the Gospel's of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Elevation Church will be spending three sermons on three parts of Jesus' life. First with his triumphant entry into Jerusalem (4/14/19). What did that mean for those then and now? Then a look at the Cross, Jesus' death, and the implications of it for people of all time (4/19/19). Finally, the resurrection; how this singular miracle of God, brings the necessary victory of God's salvation in Christ alone (4/21/19). Please take some time to listen to these Epic messages by linking to www.el-church.com and going to the messages page.
May your Easter 2019 be...
