Who is the G.O.A.T.? If we are to be truly objective and real, there is truly ONLY One who is ETERNALLY SUPERIOR in EVERY aspect of His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Character. His name is not Ali, Brady, or even Jay-Z. His name is Jesus! Today we will begin to discover that because of the Resurrection, Jesus Christ is the G.O.A.T. And the Only One!!!!
Why is Jesus the G.O.A.T.?
Colossians 1:17-19 AMPC
17 And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together). 18 He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent]. 19 For it has pleased [the Father] that all the divine fullness (the sum total of the divine perfection, powers, and attributes) should dwell in Him permanently.
To be The Greatest Of All Time is to be something or to do something that no one else on earth has ever done. The G.O.A.T. has the unique status of being both “first” and “only” at the same time.
Read Acts 26:23 AMPC
When Jesus submitted Himself to the death of the cross, He not only sacrificed His blood for sin, but He also put His godhood at risk.
Why? BECAUSE GOD DOES NOT DIE. If He dies and remains dead, He is no longer immortal and subsequently no longer God. So, what was the solution? Resurrection!!!!
Resurrection - anastasis; a standing up again, i.e. (literally) a resurrection from death or (figuratively) a (moral) recovery (of spiritual truth).
God wants you to stop living a lie.
The Resurrection of the Greatest Of All Time:
#1. Has the Power to save anyone who believes in His Resurrection.
Read John 11:25-26 AMPC
#2. The Resurrection demonstrates The G.O.A. T.’s mastery over death which intern promises that all who believe in Him will experience resurrection power in life!
Read 1 Corinthians 15:16-22 NLT
Jesus defeated death in the Resurrection!
Read Hebrews 2:14-15 AMPC
Jesus rose from the dead because the grave could not hold him. Death had no mastery over him. Therefore, you and I need not to fear death. We also do not need to fear eternal punishment.
#3. The Resurrection unifies your death with His death and unifies your life with His LIFE.
Philippians 3:10-11 AMPC
10 [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope] 11 That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body].
Ultimately, the G.O.A.T. in Him will produce the G.O.A.T. in you.
