EASTER 2018 – THE POWER OF REDEMPTION
THE POWER OF REDEMPTION
- FREEDOM: Brokenness is no longer the author of my story.
- HOPE: The past is not dictating my future.
- TRUTH: It was finished on the cross.
- RESTORATION: My heart can be restored from the depths of my pain.
THIS IS RESURRECTION
1 - TWO GUYS ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS
LUKE 24:13-35 NIV Now that same day TWO OF THEM were going to a village called Emmaus, about SEVEN MILES from Jerusalem. 14 They were TALKING WITH EACH OTHER ABOUT EVERYTHING that had happened (the crucifixion). 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, JESUS HIMSELF (after He was resurrected) came up and WALKED ALONG WITH THEM; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.
LUKE 24:13-35 NIV 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, "Were not OUR HEARTS BURNING WITHIN US while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?" 33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together.

"Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you." Jesus said, "FEED MY LAMBS." 16 Again Jesus said, "Simon son of John, DO YOU LOVE ME?" He answered, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." Jesus said, "TAKE CARE OF MY SHEEP." 17 The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, DO YOU LOVE ME?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "FEED MY SHEEP”.
LUKE 24:33-34, 36, 45-47 NIV 33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together 34 and saying, "It is true! The LORD HAS RISEN and has APPEARED TO SIMON." ... 36 While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you." ...
