Easter: What will you do with Jesus? – April 8, 2007

“Easter: What will you do with Jesus?”

Text: John 19:38-20:31

He is risen! He is risen, indeed!

While the twelve disciples all betray, deny, or abandon Jesus, two secret disciples come out of hiding to make public their allegiance to Jesus and His teachings. We can only imagine the guilt, despair, and hopelessness experienced by the disciples during those nights following Jesus’ arrest and crucifixion. And yet, despite the fact that they fled Jesus, He came to them with grace and forgiveness. The question remains–what will you do about the Good News of Jesus the Christ? What sort of a disciple will you be?
