A Second Chance at Life

Jeremiah 31.1-6

Thus says the LORD: The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the LORD appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore, I have continued my faithfulness to you.?

Jeremiah 31.2-3 (ESV)


The first Easter story is filled with people who are deep in the throes of grief.

The first disciples come to the tomb expecting death.

Those who encounter the risen Christ experience NEW LIFE by God through Jesus.

The resurrection narrative fulfills Jeremiah 31.1-6.

  • The ones who survive the sword find grace (AND LIFE) in the wilderness.

  • Jesus appeared, bringing life, from far away.

  • The resurrected Jesus comes bringing Gods everlasting love to Gods own.

The first disciples experience restoration, by God through Jesus.

Jesus rose from the dead bringing a second chance at REAL LIFE to us, to those who believe.

The future life is guaranteed by the everlasting love and grace of God.
