Easter in August


By Dean Fulks, August 21, 2022

The Gospel calls us to a life above labels

Your labels can become your limits

History turns on whether or not the Resurrection is true

Luke 24:17 – And he said to them, “What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?” And they stood still, looking sad.

Luke 24:18 – Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”

Luke 24:15-16 – As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him…

Luke 24:20-21 – The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.

If the resurrection is true, we should leverage everything in this life for the next life

If the resurrection is true, we much more easily deal with losses in this world

If the resurrection is true, the most important decision we will ever make is what to do with Jesus
