Easter at Pantano

Message Notes

Message Big Idea: So many of us are living in bitterness and cynicism. Pessimism pervades our daily experience. We are often disappointed and dissatisfied. We’ve been disillusioned by people and their promises. Discouragement becomes an all too frequent visitor. We are constantly in danger of losing hope. How do you get a new start and new birth with a renewed optimism? Where do we find a living hope? A living hope is found only in Jesus, the resurrected Jesus, who is alive and with us and for us. In this Easter message we discover or rediscover that the living hope that overcomes is based on and anchored in the resurrection!

Main Idea: The living Jesus gives us living hope!

Main Text: 1 Peter 1:3
