Death Defeated

Revelation 1:18 – April 3, 2010

Death was defeated when Jesus rose from the dead, and one day death will be no more.

What If

1 Corinthians 15:12-20 – March 24, 2008

This sermon reveals the four disastrous consequnces if the resurrection is not true. If Christ did not rise from the dead, our preaching has no purpose, our faith has no forgiveness, our death has no deliverance, and our service has no significance.

Christ and the Problem of Death

Hebrews 2:14-15 – April 12, 2006

“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who has the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death” (Hebrews 2:14-15). I have been closely touched by death […]

A Tale of Two Men

Acts 2:24-32 – March 27, 2005

“Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of the […]

The Incorruptible Christ

Acts 2:24 – April 20, 2003

The first word is sometimes as important as the last word. Seven weeks had passed since the resurrection of Jesus. For 40 amazing days, Jesus appeared to his disciples on many occasions and taught them concerning the Kingdom of God. Then he ascended into the clouds and returned to his Father in heaven. Ten days […]

Why Are You Weeping?

John 20:11-18 – March 31, 2002

The story of Mary Magdalene meeting Jesus at the empty tomb is found only in John’s gospel. I think Mary must have told John about it personally. Everything about this little slice of life rings true to human nature as we know it. A weeping woman lingers by an empty tomb, wondering what has happened […]

What’s Your Problem with the Resurrection?

Acts 26:8 – April 23, 2000

The year: AD 60. The place: The palace of Herod Agrippa II in Caesarea by the Sea. The setting: The Apostle Paul has been in jail for two years. Now he stands in chains before the mighty Agrippa, great-grandson of Herod the Great, the malevolent king who attempted to butcher the baby boys in Bethlehem. […]

The Death of Death

II Timothy 1:10 – April 4, 1999

“Christ Jesus … has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” II Timothy 1:10b Of all the fears that grip the hearts of modern men and women, no fear is greater than the fear of death. It is an evidence of our technological progress that on this Easter Sunday […]

The Rising of the Rejected Stone

Acts 4:8-12 & 1 Peter 2:4 – April 12, 1998

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Easter has come once again but not everyone is smiling. This is the paradox of Easter—it is the holiest day on the Christian calendar, but not everyone shares our […]

The Supreme Question of Easter

John 11:25-26 – March 23, 1997

Because this is Easter season, the major newsmagazines have been running cover stories on religious themes. Last week Time magazine did one entitled “Does Heaven Exist?” Newsweek chimed in with “The Mystery of Prayer: Does God Play Favorites?” Even TV Guide got in the act with a series on articles on the theme “God and […]

The Easter Conspiracy

Matthew 28:11-15 – April 7, 1996

“The resurrection of Christ is either the greatest miracle or the greatest delusion which history records.” Philip Schaff It’s been a good week for Jesus if you count cover stories as good news. For the first time in my memory Jesus is on the cover of the three major newsmagazines in the same week. Newsweek […]

What Difference Does Easter Make?

Various – April 16, 1995

If Easter had not happened, Christmas would have no meaning. If Easter had not happened, Christmas would be nothing more than a sweet-sounding fable. If Easter is not true, then Christmas is only the story of an obscure baby born in an out-of-the-way town in a forgotten land 2000 years ago. It is the great miracle of Easter that gives Christmas its true meaning.

Easter Questions

Luke 24:1-12 – April 11, 1993

Can a person who calls himself a Christian ever doubt the resurrection of Jesus Christ? This morning I am going to argue that the answer to that question is Yes! It may sound odd to say that to a group like this on Easter morning but the question itself is very crucial. Let me put […]

Good News From the Graveyard

Luke 24:1-3 – April 19, 1992

Thursday afternoon I took a walk through Forest Home Cemetery. It’s an old cemetery nestled between the Eisenhower Freeway and Roosevelt Road. When I arrived, the place was almost deserted. I drove down one of the winding narrow roads and stopped near a large monument. It’s a quiet place. You feel very alone even though […]

Easter And The Secular Mind

Acts 25-26 – April 15, 1990

Part One I’m going to tell you an Easter story this morning about a man you probably don’t know much about. When I tell you his name, you’re going to think of something else, and some of you are going to think I’m just making it up. But I’m not. This man is in the […]

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
