The Road to Resurrection Is a Difference Maker

1. JESUS IS WHO HE CLAIMED TO BE

John 2:18-22 (ESV) So the Jews said to him, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?” 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he was speaking about the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can get to God the Father except by means of me.”

2. JESUS SHOWS HE HAD THE POWER HE CLAIMED TO HAVE

John 1:1–3 (ESV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.

John 10:18 “Nobody takes my life from me. I have the power to lay it down and I have the power to take it up again.”

3. JESUS DOES WHAT HE PROMISES TO DO

2 Corinthians 1:18-20 (ESV) As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been Yes and No. 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. 20 For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.

Mark 10:34 “They will mock and flog and kill me but after three days I will come back to life.”

Three true realities.

1. MY PAST CAN BE FORGIVEN AND FORGOTTEN

Colossians 2:12–14 (ESV) having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.

2. MY PRESENT PROBLEMS CAN BE MANAGED THROUGH JESUS’ POWER AND GUIDANCE

Ephesians 1:20 “How incredibly great is His power to help those who believe Him, the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead.”

Isaiah 43:2-3a (ESV) When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. 3 For I am the LORD your God,…

Philippians 4:13 ” I am strong for all things in the One who constantly infuses strength in me”

Philippians 4:13 (Phillips NT) “I am ready for anything through the strength of the one who lives within me.”

3. MY FUTURE CAN BE SECURE AND CERTAIN.

John 17:3 “This is the way to have eternal life. By knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ the one He sent to earth.”

1 Peter 1:3 “We have been born again into a life full of hope through Christ rising from the dead.”
