John 20:1–9 NIV84
1 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” 3 So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4 Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, 7 as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus’ head. The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen. 8 Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. 9 (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.)

1. The Passion of Jesus Christ

Passion is the suffering and death of Jesus
He suffered for us
He died for us

2. The Empty Tomb

Jesus did not stay dead
Jesus defeated death
Jesus kept His word and on the 3rd day rose from the dead

3. The Legacy of the empty tomb

Legacy is something handed down by a predecessor
Death is not the end for us
Death is not the end for us
We are more than conquerors
We have victory in Jesus
We are healed
We have power in Jesus
We have the spirit of courage
No weapon will be able to defeat us

4. Your turn

Jesus chose to suffer and die for us
Will you choose to live for Him?
Jesus defeated the enemy
You should live a victorious life
