That's Not All Folks
When I was going to college, the rock opera “Jesus Christ, Superstar” was being performed for the first time. It was wildly popular. It was made into a movie. I had never seen it. I loved the songs in them with the snappy and lively rhythms. It wasn’t a movie I would recommend people to see since there was a lot in it that was simply not true and gave the wrong impression. The last scene, however, was done well. It was very moving. It was the scene of the crucifixion. While the crucifixion was done so as to touch the human emotion, there was something seriously wrong. That’s where the movie ended as if to say, “That’s all folks!” I was trained to know that there was more. I know there was more. The Bible says there is more. Without the resurrection the Bible says that our faith is futile and we are lost in our sin. Jesus with no Easter? Christ’s life with no resurrection? I’m sorry, Mr. Andrew Lloyd Webber, that’s not all folks. Jesus Christ has destroyed death by his resurrection. Jesus destroyed the eternal effects of sin. If Jesus remained in the grave, what proof is there that sins are paid for. How do we know that we are really all right with God? Jesus is alive and well and lives with us everyday. He promised, “I am with you to the very end of the age.” The Crucifixion? That’s NOT all folks.
Join us this Easter and hear the good news of the empty grave and how Jesus fills our lives.
In Him who has risen from the dead,
