Easter - Transformation

Easter 2017
Josh Canizaro
April 16, 2017
(1 Corinthians 15:17-18 NLT) If Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost!
Believing in the resurrection is believing that Jesus Christ rose from the dead to give us new life here today and in the hereafter.
(1 Corinthians 15:20-22 NLT) In fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died. So... everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.
Born This Way
Awkward
Broken
Confused
Defeated
(1 Corinthians 15:19 NLT) If our hope is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.
Transformed His Way
(2 Corinthians 3:15-18 GNT) Even today, whenever they read the Law of Moses, the veil still covers their minds. But it can be removed, as the scripture says about Moses: “His veil was removed when he turned to the Lord.” Now, “the Lord” in this passage is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is present, there is freedom... The Spirit, transforms us into his likeness.
(Psalm 34:17-22 NLT) The lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. The righteous person faces many troubles, but the lord comes to the rescue each time. For the lord protects the bones of the righteous; not one of them is broken! Calamity will surely destroy the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be punished. But the lord will redeem those who serve him. No one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
1. Belong to Christ.
(1 Corinthians 15:22 NLT) Everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.
2. Be transformed by renewing your mind.
(Romans 12:2 NIV) Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
