Easter, Death and Taxes

Sunday’s Easter message was called Easter, Death and Taxes. Here is a brief outline of the message:

The inevitability of death –
   1) Death began with Adam and Eve’s sin in the garden
      – Genesis 2:15-17, 5:5
   2) We all sin without exception
      – Psalm 51:5; Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23
   3) We all die because we all sin (physical/spiritual/eternal death)
      – Isaiah 59:2; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-2; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9

The inevitability of taxes –
   1) God tells you to pay what you owe
      – Matthew 17:27, 22:21; Romans 13:7
   2) When it comes to sin we owe a debt we cannot pay
      – Psalm 49:7-9; Romans 3:20, 6:23; Galatians 2:21
   3) The day of accounting comes for us all
      – John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:11-15

The good news of Easter –
   1) Christ is risen!
      – Matthew 28:1-10
   2) Death is defeated!
      – John 11:25-27; 1 Corinthians 15:54-56
   3) The debt has been paid!
      – Romans 4:4-8, 6:23
