    'The Gift of God', by Pastor Vern

    March 30, 2018

    Luke 24: 13-35                                         

    Easter Sunday reminds us of the wonderful hope that we have because of Jesus.

    …”an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for you” 1 Peter 1: 3-4     

    The Biblical account of the Road to Emmaus will help us this morning appreciate all that is going on.

    1 The sacrifice for sin – vrs 20   

    • John 1:29 “…Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the whole world!”    
    • These two were talking about Jesus as they walked
    • A stranger joins them and listens as they tell the story of Jesus
    • They were also expressing their grief and hope
    • The idea of the resurrection was shared with them earlier in the day
    • ‘Didn’t find the body, …told us they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive’  vrs 23
    • They left the gathering still unsure

    2 The price of sin – vrs 26     

    • Christ had to suffer in order to accomplish the penalty of sin
    • Mark 15:31 ‘My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”  
    • The weight and burden of our sin was heavy  
    • Rom 3:23 ‘For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God’   
    • The conversation covers what the Bible says about the role of a Saviour that would suffer for sin
    • They shared the meal together and as Jesus served them they understood
    • ‘Were not our hearts burning within us as he talked…’ vrs 32
    • They returned to Jerusalem and told the others what had happened

     3 The gift for sin

    • The cross tells the first part of this incredible story
    • John 19:30 ‘Jesus said, “It is finished.”  With that, he bowed his head and give up his spirit’
    • The terrible burden of sin and the moment of death reminds us that it cost everything
    • The gift of a life free from the consequence of sin was now possible
    • Salvation and freedom for our lives is provided through what Jesus did for us
    •  ‘For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord’      Rom 6:23 – One Verse Evangelism

     4 Sin is conquered - He is risen – vrs 34

    • The empty tomb tells the second part of this incredible story
    •  ‘It is true! The Lord has risen’ 
    • The world begins to grapple with startling and amazing news
    • Life is forever different because of Jesus
    • The gift of our salvation could not be except for the death and resurrection of Jesus.


    • Our daily walk resonates with the truth Jesus walks with us
    • The resurrected life of Jesus is amazing truth to all who receive
    • Enjoying the gift of forgiveness in Jesus leads to an eternal inheritance
