Matthew 28:1-20

Palm Sunday Points Us To Resurrection Sunday, And Resurrection Is The Telos Of The Easter Message! Without Resurrection The Cross Of Jesus Christ Possesses No Power And Becomes A Mere Instrument Of Punishment. Jesus Rising From The Dead Vindicates God (Ps. 16:10-11), Establishes God’s Word As Truth (Num. 23:19), And Releases God’s Promises As Yes And Amen, (2 Cor. 1:20). God Has Given A Crown To Christ And Has Reserved One For All Who Have Counted The Cost And Have Taken Up Their Cross. This Resurrection Sunday, 2021, As We Battle A Global Pandemic, Let Us Rise From Sin And Suffering Into The Life Of Promised Success, Because Jesus Is Alive. We Declare That He Is Risen And So Are We!

1. RESURRECTION & SIN: (Gen. 2:17) “The Wages Of Sin!”

  • The Cost Of Our Sin = Sin Comes With A Price, (Rom. 6:23).
  • The Cross For Our Sin = Sin’s Price Has Been Paid, (Mark 10:45).

  • KEY: The Power Of Sin Is Broken! (1 Cor. 15:56-57).

2. RESURRECTION & SUFFERING: (Isa. 53:4) “The Covering Of Sin!”

  • The Cost Of Suffering = Our Days Of Anguish, (Job 14:1).
  • The Cross As Suffering = His Day Of Atonement, (1 John 2:1-2).
  • The Crown After Suffering = Our Days Of Advantage, (Matt. 28:18).
  • Key: The Pain Of Suffering Is Healed, (Isa. 53:5).

3. RESURRECTION & SUCCESS: (3 John 2) “The Wonders Of The Savior!”

  • The Cost Of Success = His Pain For Ours, (Matt. 27:46).
  • The Cross Before Success = His Cross As Ours, (Matt. 16:24).
  • The Crown Is Success = His Glory Is Ours! (Hag. 2:9).
