 Eyewitnesses saw the resurrected Jesus!

2 Peter 1:16 “we saw with our own eyes”   1 John 1:1- “looked at, touched”   1 Cor 15:5-8 “500 saw”

Romans 1:3-4 “..he was declared to be God’s Son with great power by rising from the dead.”

 What God wants:

John 6:28-29    The work God wants you to do is this:  Believe the One he sent.  

1 John 2:17 ….the person who does what God wants lives forever.

Eph 5:17  So do not be foolish but learn what the Lord wants you to do.

Hebrews 11:1 “Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it.”          (2 Cor 4:18)

Hebrews 11:6  “ And without faith it is impossible to please GOD,  because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”

Romans 3:22  God makes people right with himself through their faith in Jesus Christ… 25  God sent him to die in our place to take away our sins….

Romans 4:25 “Jesus was given to die for our sins, and was raised from the dead to make us right with God.” 

John 3:18   Jesus speaking:    “People who believe in God’s Son are not judged guilty.”      

Matt 10:32-33 Jesus saying: “All those who stand before others and say they believe in me, I will say before my Father in heaven that they belong to me.”

Through FAITH, we believe    JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD; HE IS THE SON OF GOD and the empty tomb verifies all the promises of God.

Heb 7:24-25(niv)   because Jesus lives forever,  ...he is able to save completely those who come to God through him,  because he always lives to intercede for them

1 Cor 15:14 “..if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.”

1 Cor 15:17 “And if Christ has not been raised,  your faith is futile;  you are still in your sins.”

1 Cor 15:32 “If the dead are  not raised,  “Let us eat and drink,  because tomorrow we will die”

1 Peter 1:13-14  All your hope should be on the gift of grace ….

Heb 10:36-11:1 You must hold on, so you can do what God wants and receive what he has promised.
