Sermon Notes 4 April 2021 – 1030 am & 1 pm
10.30 am & 1 pm
Speaker: Rev Wendell Chua
Why the Resurrection matters
Introduction – Ultimate things
Looking for Jesus among the dead (1-3)
The good news of Easter (4-8)
Three responses (9-12)
i. The women – Believe and share (9-10)
ii. The disciples – Don’t believe, do nothing (11)
iii. Peter – Don’t write off, check it out (12)
Summary – Does the Resurrection of Jesus even matter today? Why bother about something that sounds as ridiculous as this? After all, the dead stay dead. But what if Jesus is indeed risen from the dead? The implications of that would be tremendous and should rightfully elicit a considered response.
- What does the resurrection of Jesus mean to you and what impact does it have on your day-to-day life?
- Think about the three responses highlighted by the text. What has your own response been when thinking about the resurrection event?
- The easter event is a huge part of why the Gospel of Jesus is such good news. How can you better relate this truth to someone who’s still an unbeliever?
