Words Aren’t Enough

Celebrate Easter hope with us! After a difficult year, join us in celebrating the mystery of resurrection amidst death, the mystery of hope amidst despair, the mystery of life amidst death. The Easter message invites us to reflect on that hope which defies simple words. Let us hope that life might lift us up together. The sermon text is from Mark 16:1-8.

In our series, “In God’s Name,” we examine the ways we describe God and God’s actions in the world. By Good Friday, Jesus will be charged with blasphemy for announcing and living out God’s liberation for the world. As we faithfully follow God, we should not be surprised that others, particularly other Christians, might consider our devotion to be blasphemy too. This Lent, join us in committing to more faithfully following our liberating God.

Sermon preached by Pastor Dallas Flippin on Sunday, April 4, 2021 at the First Baptist Church of Jackson, MI.
