The fact that Jesus is alive and His Spirit lives within us cannot be taken for granted. The Newsboy’s anthem, “God’s Not Dead” sets us up for a wonderful discussion of Christ’s resurrection and what that means for believers today.
You will not regret spending time in the gospel of John this week as you ponder the “red letters” of His last words to His disciples and to us.
On this episode I discuss:
- How the question of God’s death even came about
- The time when the angel sat on the stone and announced that Jesus was alive
- The importance of Jesus appearing to His disciples after His resurrection
- What it means to have Christ and the Holy Spirit within us
- Where in Scripture God is described as “roaring like a lion”
- Challenge to spending time in the Gospel of John this week
