Today we proclaim the news that Jesus was dead, but rose again. Why is it, then, that this event feels more like legend than a life-changing message? Does this story have anything to do with our waking up on Monday morning? To help us think about this, we are going to look at the very first Christian sermon ever preached---exactly 50 days after Jesus was on the cross. For Peter and the followers of Jesus, Pentecost was a significant and life-changing moment. By stepping into this moment, we can see how the message was life-changing for Peter and 3,000 of his closest friends that day. Yet, there were also people who either rejected the message or just went on with life, and nothing changed. The invitation is to see the Resurrection as more than just an ancient story; rather, to realize that it is an invitation into the story, so that the story of the Resurrection redefines your story.
