Sermon: “This is Our Good News!”
Theme: The resurrection is the message of God’s love and justice overcoming everything, including death so that we live in confidence and unending joy.
Purpose: The congregation will embrace the meaning of the resurrection for their own life.
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 The testimony of witnesses to the resurrection.
John 20:1-18 The story of the resurrection
What does the resurrection mean to us today? How can we live as those whose confidence comes from God’s victory over death and suffering? How do we put the challenges and problems that we and those whom we love face into a perspective that is shaped by the promise of the resurrection? What is God seeking to teach us in and through the resurrection in practical terms? What can we do to face the challenges we experience of death and suffering with confidence and peace?
