Greater Hope | Matthew 28.1-15 (Easter)
Topic: Topical Series Passage: Matthew 28:1–28:15
One of the greatest evidences for Jesus resurrection is the radical change in his disciples. The Resurrection is the event that transformed confused, heartbroken, and fearful cowards into courageous leaders and martyrs. Through their radical lives and their fantastic deaths, we see how their unshakable belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ gave them something more powerful than life. That “something” was hope. Hope is powerful. Simply defined, hope is conviction derived from the certainty of something happening (or not happening). These kinds of expectations can greatly influence, even govern, how we think, feel, perceive, and act. Christian hope is fundamentally different than the hope found in the world.
