Visible haven on the other side.
1 Corinthians 15:12-19.
Everyone knew Jesus' tomb was empty.
If we don't believe in the resurrection of the dead, our faith is worthless.
The knowledge that God exists is not enough.
Too much religion and not enough resurrection.
It's not about being comfortable.
This world is fallen.
It's easy for us to be comfortable in our faith.
Do you know?
Can you see the house on the other side of the cemetery? Is there evidence in my life where I'm walking?
Purpose vs browsing/strolling.
We cannot stroll in our faith.
#1 Are you living life as if this is all there is?
#2 What's the most important thing to you?
#3 What's the biggest priority in your life?
#4 Do you feel an urgency to call others to Christ?
There's only one person who really went to heaven who could tell us about it -- Jesus!
If we don't take the invitation our place will be empty. Resurrection is what we'll happen to us.
People get prepared for a wedding.
We are getting ready to see the Bridegroom.
Acknowledgement of what we've been given. Our life should be an expression of our faith.
Are we window shopping or living?
1 Corinthians 15:58:28-34.
