Easter 2014: Grace Wins

Easter 2014

Speaker: Ty Neal
Date: April 20, 2014

What comes to your mind when you think of Easter? Bunnies? Eggs? Peeps? Although these are great things our families and the culture enjoy during the holiday, Easter is about so much more. Easter is all about Jesus! You may be familiar with the story of Easter, Jesus died on a cross, was buried in a grave and resurrected three days later, but what difference does that actually make in your life? If it is true, if it is real, if it actually happened, it makes all the difference in the world to our lives now! Join us on Easter Sunday as we discover the true meaning of the holiday and its significance in our lives. We will also be having baptisms on that day. Come and see...you never know, you might want to take the plunge!

Romans 5:20-21

Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:1-11

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
