Sermon: Commissioned to share Knowledge of Christ
Theme: We are empowered by our experiences of resurrection to assist others in their discovery of Jesus’ resurrection for their own lives.
Purpose: To understand how we share the resurrection with others.
Scriptures: Mark 16: 9-20 The longer ending to Mark’s Gospel, Jesus appears and commission the disciples.
Questions: What role do we play in sharing the resurrection with others? What is the difference between attempting to “evangelize” others to believe as we do and assisting others in discovering the resurrection for themselves? In what ways is the resurrection a relationship with God rather than a doctrine or theology? How does knowing the hope of God’s power over death change a person’s life?
