Our pastor used these verses: Revelation 1:17-18:
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
The title of the sermon was: KEYS
He passed out a key to everyone, and had them put it on their key ring. (it was a super cute key, too!!)
Then he had a prop
But, on the other side..... We can choose heaven... it's our choice
It was a great service....
HE IS RISEN!
HE IS RISEN, INDEED!!
