1 Corinthians 15:1-11, 20-22
Unifying Principle (Focus)
People need to be reminded of important events that shape their identities and actions. What kind of event can make such an influence on their lives? Jesus’ resurrection provided tangible evidence of the possibility of resurrection for those whose identity is formed by Christ Jesus.
Goals for the Learners
To explore the meaning of Christ’s resurrection.
To value and appreciate one’s identity in Jesus Christ.
To witness personally and corporately to the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Lesson Challenges for the Week
Witness to someone this week about your own beliefs concerning the resurrection of Jesus. Include a story to illustrate your personal experiences with him. Think of this as your “eyewitness account.”
Create or review your last will and testament. Have you distributed your worldly good in a way that honors your love and commitments to family, friends, your church, and organizations important in your life?
Pray for those who do not know Jesus. Ask the Lord to work in their hearts so that they might come into a personal relationship with the One whom God resurrected from the dead.
