Sermon: We need the resurrected Jesus

Some Christians try to explain the resurrection, as if it’s some sort of math problem. Others look at it as a representation of a feeling that Christ is with us — a feeling of not being alone.

However, it’s impossible for us to explain the Godly feat of the resurrection, and it’s not enough to think of the resurrection as a “feeling.” But we must embody the resurrection, because our own personal spirituality is not enough to get us through difficult times. We need the risen Jesus.

Because being a Christian is about, “letting the reality of the risen Lord call us into situations that our bodies would not have the power to into unless is was accompanied by our strong companion, Jesus Christ, the resurrected Lord.”
