Easter Sunday: Alive & Risen

Mar 31, 2024    Akil Thompson

"Alive & Risen," dives deep into the heart of Mark 16:1-7. Pastor Akil guides us through the early morning journey of Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome, as they set out to anoint Jesus' body, only to find the tomb empty and an angelic message that would alter the course of history.

In this sermon, we'll explore the significance of the empty tomb and the angel's message, "Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him." This passage isn't just a cornerstone of the Christian faith; it's a beacon of hope and renewal for everyone, symbolizing that darkness and despair do not have the final word.

Pastor Akil will unpack how the resurrection of Christ empowers us to live lives marked by victory, purpose, and the transformative power of hope. We'll look at the practical implications of what it means to live as people of the resurrection, embodying the hope, peace, and joy that come from knowing Jesus is alive and has conquered death.

Whether you're familiar with the Easter story or hearing it for the first time, this message is designed to resonate with everyone, inviting you to experience the profound implications of Jesus' resurrection in your own life. So, bring your doubts, your fears, and your hopes as we celebrate the fact that Jesus is indeed Alive & Risen!
