Scripture Text: John 20:10-18
10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.
11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12 And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my LORD, and I know not where they have laid him.
14 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the LORD, and that he had spoken these things unto her.
A God Who Still Moves Stones
What does Easter stand for? And in the multitude of possible answers let me share six of them with you:
E - Empty Tomb that provides hope in a hopeless world.
There are so many people searching in this world. Searching for forgiveness, for hope, for meaning. And the good news of Easter is that the empty tomb provides that hope in a hopeless world.
A - Angel who invited them to look.
Take a look at the evidence. God still invites us to do that. You can look for yourself. The evidence is there if you investigate.
S - Surprise at an empty grave
Not many people expected him to show up on that Sunday morning either and what a surprise, what a shock that his new birth caused.
T - Tell - The command they were given.
After the angel invited the surprised women into the tomb, they were told to ďgo and tell this good news to others.Ē
E - Excitement that the women felt that morning.
We donít always see right away how things are going to turn out. Thatís how it was for the disciples on Friday and Saturday. But what a difference a day makes.
R - Resurrected Lord who is living today.
We know - Mohammed is still in grave, Buddha is still in grave, Confucius, Joseph Smith - all still in the grave - only in Christianity do we find a Resurrected Lord.
Everything hinges on the resurrection. In our deepest, darkest moments. When we donít think it can ever get better. The resurrection gives us hope that it can. When we are in the midst of day one, or day two, the resurrection gives us hope that there is a day three and victory is coming.
Letís go to A NEW DIMENSION!!
