Selected highlights from this sermon

In this message, Pastor Wiersbe explains how every unsaved person is spiritually dead. By looking at three people who Jesus raised from the dead, we learn that Jesus provides the way for eternal life.

How do you know you’ve passed from being spiritually dead to being spiritually alive? You’ll speak of eternal live, have an appetite for the Word of God, and walk according to God’s will.

No matter how old you are, you need life in Jesus Christ.

Jesus raises the dead through the power of His word.

Whenever Jesus performed a miracle, He had at least three purposes in mind.
