In John 10 and the story of Lazarus we see the stages of physical death and spiritual death, the religious beliefs about resurrection and then see that in Jesus there is true resurrection and eternal life.
In John chapter 9 we see Jesus again declaring Himself to be the Light of the World. In this chapter we see the progressive revelation that the blind beggar has til he comes to the point of bowing the knee and worshipping Jesus.
When Lazurus came forth out the tomb, he was alive, but was wrapped in death clothes, and Jesus commanded that they be taken off which is a mirror image of somebody putting their life in Christ and still being wrapped up in stuff which Jesus tells us now to remove.
Rod Barnett, the Festival Director for the Lancashire Festival of Hope, uses the calling of Matthew in Matthew 9:9-13 to show that there is a place for everyone at God’s table and that we no longer need to allow our past to dictate our future. Great message!!
In this second part we see that personal experience of the resurrected Christ and the subsequent transformation of your life is the greatest and most powerful evidence of the resurrection of Christ from the dead and also a future guaranteed. However, we also review some other evidences of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead and the implications for each one of us.
This sermon starts to look at the fact that a foundational belief and hope for the Christian is to be resurrected. This belief is founded in scripture, a personal experience of being born-again and also in the actual resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
