Impact of the Resurrection
What impact did Easter have on your week?
How did it change your perspectives of life and activities?
What changes did Jesus’ death for your sin and His resurrection make in the environment where you were?
Let’s look at how these events changed the disciples who followed Jesus on Earth and before Pentecost.
God’s miraculous sign in the resurrection
The disciples became more confident after Jesus’ resurrection.
They realized that every other word from God was true, for He had resurrected Jesus;
They realized that their lives had been forever changed and so must their lifestyles;
They realized that they would have Jesus’ power wherever they went;
They realized that they would be changing people from the inside out;
Questions for contemplation and discussion:
Do I realize each of these things, as the disciples of Jesus did?
How can my faith be strengthened by the resurrection?
Do I wait for the Lord or charge off in my strength or follow someone else?
What ‘signs’ accompany my words?
How can I let Jesus live through me?
