Theme: The Resurrection (Rescued, Renewed & Released!)

sermon theme for 2014

Theme Verse: II Corinthians 5:14-21

We spent time on Mark 12:28-31, the greatest command, in the year 2013. As God has given us another year, we will read, meditate on, examine, and seek to take hold of what it means to be controlled by the love of God.

We realize that the resurrection of Jesus extends far beyond just a literary argument. His resurrection was a game changer for the entire world. Death and sin are no longer heavy weight champions over mankind’s destiny, but they have been defeated by the wonderful resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Champion! (I Corinthians 15:55-57) The impact covers the span of time as we know it, not only those who lived during His walk on earth, but those who were before Jesus’ supernatural birth and those, like us, who came after. God in His infinite wisdom saw that it was the best time to send a Savior. (Romans 5:6-11) We are now living in the last days. (Acts 2:17; II Timothy 3:1-5; Hebrews 1:1-3; II Peter 3:3)

Have you truly experienced the resurrection power of Jesus? Has His resurrection changed everything for you? We will spend time on II Corinthians 5:14-21 this year laying a hold of that for which God has laid a hold of us. Come and experience the community of the resurrected!
