"I'm Neither An Optimist Nor a Pessimist: Jesus Christ is Risen From the Dead!" [Easter 2022]

April 18, 2022

Series: Easter Sunday 2022

Mark tells us that the women came to the tomb that first Easter morning, saw that it was empty, heard from the angel, and *still* left bewildered and afraid.

Why?

It’s because their categories couldn’t fit what God had just done.

We think our outlook depends on our circumstances, but what happens when our circumstances give us no reason to be optimistic?

This is where Easter Hope begins, a Hope that *has nothing whatsoever* to do with our circumstances.

It’s the most important news in the world.

Scripture: Mark 16:1-8
