Easter 2018 Sermon Discussion Qs
Sermon Discussion Questions
Lesson 6: “Hope Arises”
1. When you think of Easters in the past, even back to your childhood, what memories do you have? Do you think of special church services? Meals with family? Looking for Easter Eggs or getting chocolate bunnies?
2. For we who Believe in Jesus as the Son of God, our Lord and Savior, Easter is more than a holiday (a holy day), more than a special Sunday to wear nicer clothes, and most certainly more than looking for Easter Eggs. Easter proves Jesus is who He said He was and it provides for us a restored relationship with God. Read and discuss the following promises in Scriptures that are only possible because of the resurrection of Jesus:
· Job 19:25-26
· John 11:25
· 1 Thessalonians 4:14-16
· Romans 8:11
· 1 Corinthians 6:14
3. Easter, the Resurrection of Jesus, brings hope. I can only imagine the hope His first followers must have felt after seeing Him crucified to see Him risen on that first Easter Sunday some 2000 years ago. How can we experience that same hope today? What does it mean to you when Peter says we can have a “Living Hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:3)?
Close your time today by reading Paul’s prayer for all believers in Ephesians 1:18-20
