As we continue our exploration of the resurrection appearances of Jesus, this week we focus on Jesus’ appearance by the sea of Galilee. We are invited to consider if we demonstrate our love for Jesus through our love for His people. Jesus restores us by bringing us back to the core of faith – do you love me?
‘Doubting’ Thomas wasn’t present when the risen Jesus first appeared to his disciples, so took some convincing that Jesus had, indeed, risen from the dead. It was only some time later, when he was able to see and touch Jesus, that he stopped doubting, and believed and worshipped. Chris preaches on John 20:24-31 and challenges us to respond to Jesus’ resurrection by choosing to believe and worship the risen Christ.
Unfortunately no audio recording is available for this sermon, but sermon notes are available for download.
The resurrection lies at the heart of the Christian faith– without the resurrection we could have no way of knowing that the cross was anything more than an act of self-sacrifice. As we have a risen Saviour there is no situation beyond His power to resurrect. The power that raised Christ from the dead is at work in you.
