Today we will have a different approach to our discussion time. First what is one thing that stuck out to you as Preacher taught through the message of Why Resurrection?
LEADER NOTE: Take time to allow everyone to speak. Since the message is on Resurrection today we will take a look at some key passages regarding our resurrection in the Bible.
Read 1 Corinthians 15:1-8
What are the main points of the Gospel that Paul is pointing out to the Corinthian church?
(it saves us, Christ died for sin according to the scripture, he was buried, raised on the 3rd day according to the scripture, He was seen by many witnesses)
What do those points have to do with us being saved?
How would you use this passage to explain the Gospel to an unbeliever? How would you start the conversation?
The resurrection of Jesus breaks the power of sin in believers lives and it insures our coming resurrection. It enables us to live a life of victory today.
Read Colossians 3:1-4
What does this passage teach us about the resurrection we have a share in with Jesus? What should be our response to our new life of being raised in Christ?
What does "set your mind on things above" mean? How can we do that in our daily living? What is the difference in having our minds on things above compared to things on earth?
What is the promise of the coming resurrection for us in verse 4? How did the message this morning help you better understand that?
The belief of the Resurrection of Jesus is important. The Bible tells us that we must believe the resurrection of Jesus in order to be saved.
Read Romans 10:8-15
What does this passage teach us about the need to believe in the Resurrection of Jesus? How does a person confess Jesus? What does Jesus being Lord mean?
What is the promise to those who will believe? (verses 9, 11, 13) What does that mean to you, how has being saved impacted your life?
In verses 14-15 what does it teach us about our responsibility in sharing the Gospel?
All believers are "sent". Who comes to your mind when you think of someone who needs to be saved by Jesus? Take time to share their names and have a time of prayer for them as well as open doors to share the Gospel with them.
Read Ephesians 2:1-10
Use this text to remind us that we have been made alive in Jesus. Take time to point out parts that are most meaningful to you in the text.
