Apr. 1 - April Truths (Mt. 27:62-28:15)
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: Share a good Easter memory or something you enjoy about spring.
A way to pray: Thank God for the truths of the crucifixion and resurrection (that these are not a hoax!). Pray for those whose lives we long to see transformed by these realities as we seek to see 2,000 people by 2022 baptized and growing in relationship with Jesus.
- Treasuring God: What is one thing I appreciate as I reflect on the details of how Jesus' resurrection took place?
- Being Transformed: When in my life have I tried to obscure God's truth? How can I promote truth instead?
- Loving Others: When have I had a chance to love someone by sharing the good news of Jesus' resurrection with them? What did it look like practically?
- Pursuing Unity: How does the resurrection encourage Jesus' followers in everyday life? Who needs me to encourage them right now?
