Matthew 28:1-10 “A response of faith on Resurrection Sunday”

Matthew 28:1-10

Resurrection Sunday. A response of Faith

Devotion – v. 1

Worship and Devotion go hand and hand

  • They did what they did (had done) because they loved JESUS.
  • You do what you do because of whom you love

Trust – vv. 2-7

An angel descends

  • Earthquake
  • Rolls the stone back
    • Not to let Jesus out, but to let women see.

They were fearful in obvious uncertainty

  • The men were terrorized.
  • Yet, the were calmed, because they had trust.
  • Trust in the midst of fear… because they knew this was a Word from the Lord.
  • Trust is based on relying and leaning on something in the midst of things WAY OUT OF YOUR CONTROL
  •  

Joy – v. 8

Fear – astonishment/amazement

An amazement that turns to joy!!!!!

Joy – An overflowing celebration within their heart.

THEY COULD NOT WAIT TO TELL OTHERS.

Worship – v. 9

One cannot help but WORSHIP Jesus once they understood HE WAS ALIVE.

  • HE ALONE IS WORTHY!

Hope – 10

Love, Trust, Joy, and Worship are rolled up and manifested by HOPE.

  • Come and See and Go and Tell
  • Come and See and Go and Live

Think about it…they have hope.  Hope because they are not who the used to be…
