Empty Tomb and Full Hearts
The title of today’s sermon is: “Empty Tomb and Full Hearts!” The disciples and other followers of Jesus were crushed when he was crucified. They couldn’t have been sadder, more defeated, or more discouraged. But it all changed on Sunday. First they heard that Jesus had risen. Next they saw his empty tomb. Then they saw Jesus himself, alive again. Their empty hearts were instantly full of joy, amazement, and thankfulness. The resurrection changed what was in their hearts, and it changes what’s in ours too.
