Easter 2019: Jesus’ Victory Over Suffering
In this sermon we return to the text we began the year with, Jesus’ great declaration at the end of the book of Revelation:
“Behold, I am making all things new.” (21:5)
This not only was a fitting text to start off our year, but is also the central text in shaping our future.
One of the most important sentences for us here at Trinity Lake Nona is:
This is God’s good world, ruined by sin, redeemed by the Son, and being recreated by the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the glory of the Christian life is that we have a God who is above us, before us, and with us. This is the Trinity.
The story of the Christian life is that this is God’s good world, ruined by sin, redeemed by the Son, and being recreated by the Holy Spirit.
Our goal at Trinity is to help you find your place in that grand story.
Our role as a church is to take part in His restoration project — to join Jesus in making all things new.
“Joining Jesus in making all things new.”
This will be our theme over the next few months. We will look at snapshots from the book of Revelation of the risen Christ as he is making all things new. And we will ask: how can we join him?
What is He making new? All things!
And He does this by starting with you, then moving to a people, and then ending with His creation.
He is making all things new:
- He is re-making your character into the image of Christ.
- He is re-making our community into the bride of Christ.
- He is re-making His creation into the kingdom of Christ.
