Easter 2024

Sermon Notes

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried,that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time
- 1 Corinthians 15:3-6


For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
- 1 Corinthians 16-20


When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”
- 1 Corinthians 15:54-55


My dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you.
- 1 Corinthians 15:58

Sermon Questions

Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 15:3-6, 16-20, 54-55, 58; Galatians 5:22-23

  1. What are your thoughts or questions about the resurrection of Jesus Christ? How do you know that He really rose from the grave?
  2. Pastor Jared began the sermon by reminding us that, through a real resurrection, God granted us a gift in full (“It is finished.”), but then he asked us if we were receiving it in full. In what ways do you attempt to “add” to your salvation or make amends for your sin? Do these actions bring us closer to God? Why or why not?
  3. From a worldview, there is a tendency for the resurrection to be sentimentalized – to turn it into something less than what it is. You cannot be indifferent, we do not live in a Hallmark world. How could your choice to believe in a “real” Easter influence the world around you - your family, your workplace, your neighborhood, etc.?
  4. When we fully accept Jesus’ gift, Heaven and eternity take on a new meaning than what we may have thought. Why do these three things matter to hope and how do they help us engage in this life? Are you inspired to live differently?
    • Sharpen our senses
    • Take the sting out of death
    • Swallow suffering
