TEXT: MARK 16:1-18
1. Jesus’ resurrection was more than just a way to get His body out of a tomb. It was God’s way for us to see living PROOF of this great and glorious TRUTH that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.  ROM. 6:4
2. Jesus didn’t come out of the grave BLOODYBRUISED, WOUNDED, living on DEFENSE or in RECOVERY MODE! He CAME OUT VICTORIOUS, alive evermore. Amen. And I have the keys of hell and death. REV. 1:16
Living raised like Christ means fully embracing INCONVENIENT CHRISTIANITY!
3. Some days it would be more convenient to live MY LIFE instead of for me to live is Christ and to die is gain.  PHIL. 1:21
4. We don’t get to conveniently live like Jesus is dead but then expect the ANOINTING to happen on Sunday!
5. We don’t get to be amazed at the greatness of God’s power but be silent about the REALITY OF HELL!
6. The sins of our past must not define us … true worship of our Lord must describe us!
7. When faith gets hard we “stay in the story” instead of conveniently walking away!
8. Hard hearts & unbelief get replaced with trusting the “long view” of God’s plan!
