"The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances." Robert Flatt
Information alone rarely changes lives. But when someone encounters the Truth (think Jesus), their future is changed for good. Sure, people's lives get changed for all sorts of different reasons, but the transformation that we see in the disciple's lives is irrefutable evidence that they believed they had encountered the living Christ.
Take time to read John 20:19-20, and learn what transformed these men, from confused doubters, into radical and fearless, willing to give their lives in the name of Jesus Christ disciples. This encounter with the living Christ completely transformed them from men who were hiding behind "doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders" into an unstoppable team. History and tradition show us that the disciples were tortured, exiled, and killed because they wouldn't keep quiet about their encounter with the resurrected Jesus.
Join us tomorrow at 9:30am for Easter at Calvary Parkside and allow an encounter with the resurrected Jesus to transform your life!
Don't forget to bring a friend!
See you Sunday.
