A Miracle! Now What?
John 20:1-9, 26-29
1. The Empty Grave is a Miracle!
a. Don’t Stop at “Looking”. (Vs. 5, Psalm 19:1-4)
i. Psalm 19:1-4, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the expanse proclaims the work of his hands. Day after day they pour out speech; night after night they communicate knowledge. There is no speech; there are no words; their voice is not heard. Their message has gone out to the whole earth, and their words to the ends of the world.”
b. Don’t Just “Contemplate” the Facts. (Vs. 6, 6:44-45, James 2:19)
i. James 2:19, “You believe that God is one. Good! Even the demons believe—and they shudder.”
c. Respond! “See” and Believe! (Vs. 8, 19-20; Romans 10:9-10)
i. Romans 10:9-10 says, “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.”
