April 15

Pastor Rick proclaimed that in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, He has opened up for us a new reality. That reality is life in God’s kingdom, both here and now, and for eternity. The resurrection of Christ is central to the way we live now as well as for eternity.

What is one important truth your grandparents passed on to you? What is one important truth you could pass on to your kids?

If you could write your own epitaph or inscription on your tombstone, what would it say?

Together as a group, read
1 Corinthians 15.3-8. Of the facts Paul lists in these verses, which is most important to you? Why?

If you were to explain who Jesus Christ is to an interested friend, what would you say?
