Questions for Reflection

  1. Read I Corinthians 15:1-58.
  2. Why is it important that Jesus was raised from the dead?
  3. Why should we no longer fear death as the end of our existence? How should this impact the way in which we live today?
  4. What is the meaning of the statement that “the best thing you have as a Christian is to lose your life”?
  5. Consider your current life situation. How does faith in the resurrected Christ help you understand what is happening to you? How can your faith in Christ bring comfort to you?
  6. Pastor Dave presented a quote that stated, “Christianity offered a prescription for action.” What actions should you take today that reflects your love for the Lord?
