Starting with Matthew 16:15-18, Pastor Dale preached the Resurrection Day sermon. Although Peter knew Jesus’ divinity, it has hidden from the people, so that He would be crucified and resurrected, providing salvation for all humanity. It offends Jesus when we are not willing to sacrifice for Him. Taking up our cross means our dying on it. Before Jesus’ resurrection, out of man’s heart came evil, but since the resurrection, we’ve been raised from the dead, meaning that now evil comes from the works of the flesh, according to Paul in Galatians 5:19. Our spirits are born again, but we still need to deal with the flesh and our minds.
