Mary is confused abut Jesus’s mission of resurrection and thinks she’s encountered the gardener. But after Jesus speaks her name, everything changes.
Listen to the latest sermons from New City Church:
With the Resurrection, everything changes. We now have hope beyond this life. What implications does this have?
Christ's life does not end with the cross, but continues on in the resurrection, where is godhood is confirmed in the conquering of death. What does this mean for us?
"Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again."
God can often surprise us, and our false expectations can create barriers of doubt and hindrances to a faithful and trusting relationship with the one who surpasses all expectation.
The tomb is empty! He died and rose again, and knowing this, our hope leads us to a deep faith and love for Jesus.
