I BELIEVE

I BELIEVE: The Resurrection of the Body and the Life Everlasting

1 Corinthians 15:16-17

“For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised; and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.”

Summary

What a day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ after defeating sin and death! Pastor Brian showed how the resurrection of the body to life everlasting is based on the resurrection of Jesus. If the Easter story is not true our faith is worthless, we are still dead in our sins, and enslaved to a life of defeat rather than victory.

Discussion

  • Share a time when you went looking for something you never thought you would find.
  • Describe an area of your life where you have lived in the defeat of sin rather than the victory of Jesus.
  • How has the reality of your faith in Jesus, who was raised from the dead on Easter Sunday impacted your life in a real way?
  • How does it encourage you to know that you were created with victory in mind?

Prayer

Pray together with those in your home. Thank God for the victory He provides through the reality of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. Confess any areas you are living in defeat. Ask God to give you a greater experience of victory in your life. Commit to seeking and living out the victory only the resurrected Jesus can provide.
