We are in the middle of a series of messages on the theme of being overwhelmed. Even though today is Easter, we continue with that theme, because at the heart of the message of Easter is God’s ultimate answer for those who are overwhelmed. Nothing gives hope to the overwhelmed like the resurrection of Christ. Our greatest hope and greatest source of encouragement when life seems too much is to magnify the fact that Our Redeemer Lives. I want to read two New Testament texts today. The first gives us the scene of the resurrection. The second gives us some insight into just how powerful and meaningful the resurrection is to our overwhelming moments of life.
