How the Resurrection Applies to Today

  • Jesus came to change the lives of sinners.

Mark 2:16-17 ESV – And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 17 And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

  • Jesus came to put us in a right relationship with God.

Romans 3:22 NLT We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ.
