Lk 11 29-32_resurrection

  1. 1. THE RESURRECTION …A FISH STORY? Luke 11:29-32
  2. 2. <ul><li>Restoration and Healing </li></ul><ul><li>11:29 So when Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him. 11:30 (Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still in the place where Martha had come out to meet him.) 11:31 Then the people who were with Mary in the house consoling her saw her get up quickly and go out. They followed her, because they thought she was going to the tomb to weep there. </li></ul><ul><li>11:32 Now when Mary came to the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said to him, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” </li></ul>Luke 11:29-32 (NET Bible) NET Bible® ©1996-2006 by Biblical Studies Press, L.L.C. All rights reserved.
  3. 3. TAKE HOME <ul><li>Is “Show Me” really a noble motto…are you in that state of mind? </li></ul><ul><li>The Sign of all Signs was earth-shaking…with a rolling stone. </li></ul><ul><li>Faith is a leap…sometimes into the dark. </li></ul><ul><li>We are called to stand a rock which only takes shape when we put our feet on it. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Opening Prayer
  5. 5. Announcements
  6. 6. Worship
  7. 7. The Gospel’s Power Is In Its Words … Not Pictures <ul><li>Herod was dying to see a miracle. </li></ul><ul><li>Even after tons of supernatural displays of power …some people still have to ‘see’ more. </li></ul><ul><li>Thomas was a good example of this. Eleven guys telling of Jesus’ resurrection wasn’t enough. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Jesus Put His Foot Down And Said A Fish Story Would Have To Suffice <ul><li>The story of Jonah …remember, three days in the belly of the big fish …then, burp. </li></ul><ul><li>What story do you remember that involves a man stuck in the belly of the earth and then…? </li></ul><ul><li>THAT story is the keeper …the one to hang on the wall …and in your heart. </li></ul><ul><li>It is the core of the Greatest Story ever told. --I Corinthians 15:1- 8 </li></ul>
  9. 9. Jesus Often Accused His Own Folk Of Having Less Faith Than Certain Pagans <ul><li>The Widow of Zarephath …gave the prophet the last of her oil and flour. </li></ul><ul><li>Naaman , the Syrian army commander </li></ul><ul><li>… was healed of leprosy …by faith. </li></ul><ul><li>Now the reference to the Queen of Sheba traveling to gather wisdom from Solomon. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Faith Does Take A Leap <ul><li>Confidence in the witnesses who testified of a risen Jesus …that is a leap. </li></ul><ul><li>Belief that the universe was created by God …a leap (but Atheism is also a leap !) </li></ul><ul><li>The ‘miracle’ of love in the face of hatred, the ‘extra mile’ when only one is sought, forgiveness in the midst of being of offended …those are believable miracles . (see Matthew 5:16) </li></ul><ul><li>Living gentle and unruffled lives in dark times …another miracle . (see Philippians 2:14- 16) </li></ul>
  11. 11. Godly Living Makes The Story Of An Empty Tomb Believable To A Watching World ( II Corinthians 4:7- 12) <ul><li>Resurrection power is at work in us. </li></ul><ul><li>The life of Jesus is revealed in our bodies. </li></ul><ul><li>To ‘show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. </li></ul><ul><li>We are God’s argument to a ‘sign-seeking world’ … the living Word . </li></ul>
