-A couple of weeks ago I heard about a Hawaiian man who had been reporting missing was presumed dead.

-He had ventured into some caves and hadn’t made it out.

-A missing person report was filed with police but after 3 ½ days no one had seen him and they assumed the worst.

-His family and friends thought he was dead!

-His aunt goes to our church and had written his name down on the prayer card…I wasn’t praying for him; he was dead!

-I was praying for his grieving family!

-But that whole time he was actually lost in a network of caves and all he had on him was small flashlight.

-And amazingly the batteries in his little flashlight held out.

-And after 3days he came out of those caves alive!

-We all know what it’s like to lose someone.

-We’ve all gotten the news that someone passed away and we have all kind of reactions.

-But rarely do we have hope that they’re coming back.

-I’ve met guys who died on the operating table brag about it, because they know it’s a big deal!

-“I died on the table and they brought me back.”

-I’m like, “That’s great…try and eat more vegetables!”

-Anyone who cheats death is a hero! But it’s kind of temporary.

-All people die, and when they die there is no coming back.

-When someone dies the realization that they’re gone sinks in.

-That’s why the resurrection of Jesus is such a powerful story.

-Dead people don’t come back; but Jesus did!

-We’re on week 4 of a 10 week series called “Gospel Deep” and today we are talking about the resurrection.

-Easter is the day churches tell the resurrection story and we’re going to have 4 services this Easter…stay tuned for info on that.

-But today we’re going to talk about what the resurrection means.

-But before we get into our text hold up that right hand!

• Jesus came to save.

• Jesus never sinned.

• Jesus died on the cross.

• Jesus rose from the grave.

• Jesus is coming back.

-If you know these 5 points you have a basic outline to help you share the Gospel.

-What is our response to the Good News? Raise that left hand up!

• Admit my sin.

• Trust in Jesus.

• Turn away from sin.

• Be baptized.

• Follow Jesus.

-This the basic gospel message and this is how we respond to the gospel. If you know this you can share this with people who don’t know Jesus.

-Now let’s talk about the only man who never sinned, who died on a cross for other people’s sins, AND…the only man who ever raised himself from the dead!

1 Corinthians 15:3 “I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said.

4 He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.”

-Notice that Paul says Jesus was raised from the dead just as the Scriptures predicted. (Ps 16:10)

-For thousands of years people had been waiting for the coming of the Savior.

-The Bible not only predicted the coming of Jesus and the death of Jesus and the burial of Jesus…but also his resurrection!

-Please notice that the apostle Paul calls these basic Gospel truths “most important.”

-The death, burial & resurrection of Jesus are foundational beliefs in the Christian faith.
