Resource Guide for the Week of April 12

... The gospel which Paul and others announce is: "Jesus is the Messiah — Israel’s Messiah, and God’s Messiah! He is the world’s true Lord.” This announcement did not grow out of great teaching from a master communicator. It was the common message of ordinary lives who were overtaken by the unexpected, unforeseen, and unbelievable. In short, ordinary lives transformed by the Extraordinary Life — Jesus, the Risen Lord. Everything we treasure about Jesus— His presence, His power, His promise, and His purpose— is established by His resurrection. If his tomb is “filled” then our faith is empty. If His tomb is empty, then our lives might be full — filled to overflowing so that we "will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 4.19-20)
