Sunday in the South 16 Apr 17

From family gatherings to peeps and new Sunday outfits, in the South, Easter traditions run deep. This Sunday was no exception. Join us for this Easter message and find that because of the resurrection, you are never alone.

  1. If you were able to attend one of the tent services on Sunday, what was your favorite part? Why?
  2. A couple of years ago a minister in our community stood in front of his church on Easter Sunday and said, “It doesn’t matter whether you believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. What matters is …” (and then he went on to explain that what matters is our sincerity, kindness, etc.). Does belief in the literal resurrection of Jesus Christ matter?
  3. Read Romans 6:8-9. Paul said, “since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again, death no longer has mastery over him.” How is the resurrection of Jesus different from the resurrection of Lazarus? (See John 11:1-45.)
  4. Read Romans 8:31. When Paul says, “What, then, shall we say in response to these things?” to what things was he referring? In response to what? Go back and read vs. 28-30 for a reminder.
  5. Name some people who have been against you in your life. How does the fact that “God is for me,” change the equation for me?
  6. Read Romans 8:32-34. How did God prove his love for me? What difference does the resurrection make in terms of God being for  me?
  7. Read Romans 8:35-39. Of the agents of separation mentioned in these verses, which is the most threatening to you? How does it feel to know that nothing will separate you from the living God?
