If the resurrection didn’t happen, Jesus was a fraud.

If the resurrection didn’t happen, Jesus could not give us life.
- John 11:25-26, 1 Corinthians 15:14-17

As we walk the road of life, Christ will come to those with…

Broken Hearts - When all seems dark. The men on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24 were deeply discouraged - their hope was dead.

Burning Hearts - Because he lives. The fire of hope and peace begin to burn in their hearts as they realize Jesus’ death wasn’t proof that he wasn’t the Messiah, but proof that we was the Messiah.
- These men believed because of the confirmation of the scriptures (Micah 5:2, Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:1-2, Isaiah 53, Psalm 22, Mark 8:31)
- These men believed because of the historical evidence for the resurrection (their eyes were opened and the recognized Jesus)
- These men believed because of the inner witness of the Holy Spirit

Beating Hearts - Receiving life. When we encounter Christ, we receive a new kind of life (John 11:25-26, Isaiah 53::5, Romans 10:9, John 1:12).

Our Response
Jesus did die and Jesus did rise, therefore...
- He is who he said he is, the only Savior and the Lord of all.
- He has the power to give you his life.
Give Jesus your broken heart; he will give you a heart that burns with hope and that beats in rhythm with his heart.

    Jesus is the Lion of God and the Lamb of God
    - The Lion of Judah - the King (Psalm 118:25-27, Genesis 49:9-10, Isaiah 9:7, Zechariah 9:9)
    - The Lamb of God - the Savior (John 1:29-31, Exodus 12)
    - In Revelation 5 we see both of these images, the Lion and the Lamb, together (Revelation 5:5-10)

     

    Jesus had to die because of God’s justice
    - Isaiah 9:7
    - Romans 3:10
     
    Jesus had to die because of God’s love
    - Ezekiel 33:11
    - 1 Timothy 2:3-4
    - 2 Peter 3:9
    - James 2:13

     

    Our Response
    Jesus’ death on the cross satisfied God’s justice and his love. We come to the Lamb each day for forgiveness. We come to the Lion each day to joyfully obey.
