Reading Plan for next week’s message

SundayDeuteronomy 4
MondayDeuteronomy 12 
TuesdayDeuteronomy 13
WednesdayDeuteronomy 17
ThursdayDeuteronomy 18
FridayDeuteronomy 29
Saturday2 Kings 22-23

Memorize/Reflect:  “Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51)

Prayer Direction:  Praise God for sending His only Son to die on the cross for your sins. Praise Jesus that He took the price, that He died, and that He is alive again today! Celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and that you never have to be alone…he is with all those who have placed their faith in Him.

“Live It!” Challenge: Resurrection Power - – In Ephesians chapter one, the Apostle Paul is clear that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is now active in the hearts and lives of those who are followers of Jesus. Identify one area of your life where you need more strength and energy. Pray for the resurrection power of Jesus to fill you in this specific area. This week seek to walk with greater boldness, confidence, and strength…in the power of Jesus.

 

Small Group Discussion (Stuff About Forever):

When you picture heaven (eternity in God’s presence through faith in Jesus), what images come to mind?  When you picture hell (eternity separate from God), what pictures come to mind?

      1. When you picture heaven (eternity in God’s presence through faith in Jesus), what images come to mind? When you picture hell (eternity separate from God), what pictures come to mind?
      2. Read: 1 Corinthians 15:1-8. The apostle Paul says there are four things he passed on to them and each one is of critical importance. Why is each of these central to our faith as followers of Jesus
        Jesus died according to the Scriptures
        Jesus was buried
        Jesus was raised
        The risen Christ appeared to many
      3. Read: 1 Corinthians 15:12-19. Some people in Paul’s day (and in our day) believe that Jesus did not really rise from the dead. Paul gives a list of implications if Christ has not risen. What, according to the apostle Paul, are the implications if Jesus did not rise from the dead?
      4. Since Jesus did rise from the dead, what are the implications of this? (Take the list above and declare the opposite!)
      5. Read: 1 Corinthians 15:35-53 What do you learn about our bodies and our future in this passage?
      6. Read: 1 Corinthians 15:54-58 What do you learn about death, and Jesus’ power over death in this passage?
      7. What is one area of your life that you need to experience power to overcome? How does the victory of Jesus on the cross and through His resurrection provide power for your daily life?
      8. In verse 58, in light of all we learn about the resurrection, we are told, “Stand firm. Let nothing move you.” How does the resurrection of Jesus help you stand strong when the world tries to push you around? How can your group members pray for the resurrection power of Jesus to give you strength to stand strong in one specific area of your life?
      9. In verse 58, in light of all we learn about the resurrection, we are also told, “Give yourself fully to the work of the Lord.” What is an area of ministry or act of service that God has called you to engage in? How does the presence of the resurrected Jesus help you serve faithfully and confidently? How can your group members pray for you and support you as you serve God and others in this area of ministry?

    8. Read:Have your group all open their Bibles to Job 38-41. Take a minute or two for each person to quietly skim through these chapters and choose one or two examples of things God says about himself.
