Upon this Rock – Part Eight
He Is Risen!

 

This is Amazing Grace - Lyrics

This is Amazing Grace

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory
The King above all kings

Who shakes the whole earth
with holy thunder
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory
The King above all kings

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross

You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
(whoa) Jesus I sing for
All that You’ve done for me

Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory
The King of Glory

Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory
The King above all kings

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross

You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
(whoa) Jesus I sing for
All that You’ve done for me

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy, worthy, worthy

This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross

You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
(whoa) Jesus I sing for
All that You’ve done for me

Ain't No Grave - Lyrics

Ain’t No Grave

Oh shame is a prison as cruel as a grave
Shame is a robber
and he’s come to take my name

Oh love is my redeemer
Lifting me up from the ground
Love is the power
where my freedom song is found

Oh shame is a prison as cruel as a grave
Shame is a robber
and he’s come to take my name

Oh love is my redeemer
Lifting me up from the ground
Love is the power
where my freedom song is found

There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
I’m gonna rise up outta the ground
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

Oh fear is a liar
with a smooth and velvet tongue
Fear is a tyrant
he’s always telling me to run

Oh love is a resurrection
and love is a trumpet sound
Love is my weapon
I’m gonna take my giants down

There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
I’m gonna rise up outta the ground
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

Oh there was a battle
a war between death and life
And there on a tree
the Lamb of God was crucified

And He went on down to hell
He took back every key
He rose up as a lion
and He’s settin’ all captives free

There ain’t no grave
Could hold His body down
There ain’t no grave
Could hold His body down

When He heard the trumpet sound
He rose up outta the ground
There ain’t no grave
Could hold His body down

There ain’t no grave
Could hold His body down
(repeat)

If You walked out of the grave
I’m walking too
(repeat)

There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
I’m gonna rise up outta the ground
There ain’t no grave
Gonna hold my body down

Scripture Reading

Luke 24:1-12

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” 8 Then they remembered his words.

9 When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. 11 But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. 12 Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.

Sermon Slides / Quotes















1 Peter 4:12-13:
12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

1 Peter 3:15:
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.

Acts 2:22-36:
22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. 23 This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. 24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him….

29 “Fellow Israelites, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. 30 But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. 31 Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay. 32 God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. 33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear….

36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”

“Easter was when Hope in person surprised the whole world by coming forward from the future into the present.”
-NT Wright, Surprised by Hope:

Old things have passed away

The Father's House - Lyrics

The Father’s House

Sometimes on this journey
I get lost in my mistakes
What looks to me like weakness
Is a canvas for your strength

And my story isn’t over
My story’s just begun
And failure won’t define me
‘Cause that’s what my Father does
Yeah, failure won’t define me
‘Cause that’s what my Father does

Ooh, just lay your burdens down
Ooh, here in the Father’s house
Check your shame at the door
‘Cause it ain’t welcome anymore
Ooh, you’re in the Father’s house

An arrival’s not the end game
The journey’s where you are
You never wanted perfect
You just wanted my heart

And the story isn’t over
If the story isn’t good
And failure’s never final
When the Father’s in the room
And failure’s never final
When the Father’s in the room

Ooh, lay your burdens down
Ooh, here in the Father’s house
Check your shame at the door
‘Cause it ain’t welcome anymore
Ooh, you’re in the Father’s house

Prodigals come home
The helpless find hope
Love is on the move
When the Father’s in the room

Prison doors fling wide
The dead come to life
Love is on the move
When the Father’s in the room

Miracles take place
The cynical find faith
And love is breaking through
When the Father’s in the room

The Jericho walls are quaking
Strongholds now are shaking
Love is breaking through
When the Father’s in the room
I said, love is breaking through
When the Father’s in the room

Ooh, lay your burdens down
Ooh, here in the Father’s house
Check your shame at the door
‘Cause it ain’t welcome anymore
Ooh, you’re in the Father’s house

Ooh, lay your burdens down
Ooh, here in the Father’s house
Check your shame at the door
‘Cause it ain’t welcome anymore
Ooh, you’re in the Father’s house
