Apr. 14 - Resurrection Sign (Jn. 11:1-44)
First listen to the sermon (posts Sun. afternoon). Then use the ideas below to help you and your group apply what the Lord is teaching you.
Icebreaker idea: What's one way that the spring season brings new life, that you particularly enjoy?
A way to pray: Pray for the areas of our lives where we need Jesus to bring resurrection life. Also ask the Lord to give new life to those in our lives who don't yet know Him, as we seek to see 2,000 people by 2022 baptized and growing in relationship with Jesus through the Word, prayer, and community.
Talk It Over:
Treasuring God: Why did the cross make no sense to Jesus' followers? How does understanding the power of the cross help me cherish God more?
Being Transformed: What dead spots in my life need to be resurrected? What specific things do I need Jesus’ life-giving power to change?
Loving Others: Jesus was deeply moved by death’s grip on humanity. How can my life show the same depth of sorrow for the lost? What needs to change in me?
Pursuing Unity: In challenging relationships, how can a focus on Jesus’ claim to be the resurrection and the life energize me to seek peace and harmony?
