SCRIPTURE & SERMON Rev. Steve
The Significance of Easter | Mark 16:1-8
When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of Jesus, and Salome bought spices so that they may go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter. ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’” Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
1). Jesus is Who He Said He Was
2). No Situation is Beyond God’s Power
3). God’s Forgiveness is Available to Everyone
