Three Days To Resurrection
Pastor Louis Johnson, April 1, 2018
(Romans 8:11 NLT) The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.
The resurrection of Jesus gives you the power to close the gap between the life you are living and could live.
WHY THREE DAYS?
(1 Peter 2:21 Message) This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.
FRIDAY: THE DAY OF PAIN
Types of Pain
(Romans 8:28) And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
There is no pain that His purpose cannot redeem.
SATURDAY: THE DAY OF CONFUSION
When we’re confused….
We want answers.
We begin to doubt.
We give up.
We feel alone.
(Psalms 73:16-17) When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply 17 till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.
There is no confusion that His presence cannot calm.
SUNDAY: THE DAY OF RESURRECTION
(John 11:25-26) “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
There is no death that His power cannot resurrect.
(Philippians 3:10-11) I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.
