Christ the Hope for the defeated
EASTER SERMON SERIES
SERIES NAME: RELENTLESS PURSUIT
BOTTOM LINE: EXPERIENCING THE UNSTOPPABLE LOVE OF CHRIST
Jesus is the hope of the world and our ultimate source of hope. The story of Easter reveals a God who is unrelenting in his pursuit of sinners. God came to live among his people not only to expose their
sinfulness but also to reveal how much He loves them. God’s love is unconditional and selfless. He loves us even before we can prove our love for Him, and He died for us in our disobedience.
What’s truly shocking about God’s love is that Jesus died for people who are messed up, sinful, unbelieving, doubtful, and disconnected. He never waits for us to love Him first before He loves us. Our love for Him is a response to His love for us.
On the cross, God loves us to death and at the same time, loves us to life.
We have hope today because of Jesus! He is relentless in his pursuit of us!
