The First Words of the Resurrected Jesus

John 20:1-18

Mary Magdalene lives the Easter story for all of us. All who follow Christ come the way she traveled. At the beginning of her story, she is described as "standing outside and crying."  that is where faith is born. Easter begins in the pain. But we do not have to stay there. What Jesus did for her, he longs to do in you.

  • Jesus saw her pain, "Dear woman..." (His compassion is endless).
  • Jesus knew her name, "Mary..." (His love is personal. You are not the only one, but it is as if you were).
  • Jesus met her need, "Do not cling..." (His provision is perfect. You don't have to cling to your salvation. He does the work. Just surrender. Trust Him).
  • Jesus gave her purpose, "go...find...tell" (His plan is for good).
    • He reminds her of the promise, "My Father, Your Father. My God, Your God."

In the coming weeks, come expecting a worship encounter that not only teaches worship - but provides fresh experiences of authentic worship. We all worship. But we do not all worship Jesus. Come in the next weeks prepared to worship Jesus!

Preach Jesus: The First Words of the Resurrected Jesus

First Words

John 20:1-18

In a world of Information Overload and Information Fatigue Syndrome, you need to be able and answer the Resurrection Question:

What is Jesus saying to you?

His Words Then: His Words Now:
"Dear Woman..." "I see you."

Psalm 33:18, "But the Lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love."

"Why are you crying?" "Who are you looking for?" "I see your hurt; I'm with you."                              

Psalm 56:8, "You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book."


Luke 10:20, "...rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

                              "I know you."
"Don't cling..."               

John 16:7, " is best for you that I go away..."

                                             "I have more for you."
"...go find..."                

Matthew 7:21-23, "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, "I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'"

                                          "you also, go find..."
