The Story of Easter Part 1, 1 Corinthians 15:20-22
Chad Murrell   -  


1. What stood out to you in the message?

2. What is the sickest you have ever been? Why was it so bad? What would you have done to get relief or a cure from this sickness?

3. Pastor Chad compared sin to a deadly disease that is passed down from Adam to all mankind. The only cure for this disease is Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection. Have you ever thought of sin in this way? How does it change how you view the necessity to share this cure with others?

4. What difference has Jesus’ cure made in your life? What hope has it brought? What purpose has it provided?

5. Pastor Chad spoke about the “Road to Emmaus” that is found in Luke 24, and how Jesus explained to the two travelers that all of the Scriptures pointed to the necessity for Jesus to die for all for the forgiveness of sins. What Old Testament examples can you think of that point to the necessity for Jesus to die for our sins? (Hint: Genesis 3:15, Psalm 22, Isaiah 9:1-6, Isaiah 25:7-8, Isaiah 42:1-4, Isaiah 53, Zechariah 9:9, etc.)

6. If all of the Scriptures point to the necessity for Jesus to die for our sins, we can conclude that God always planned from the beginning of time to send His Son to die for us. How does this eternal plan of salvation show God’s love for you? How does it encourage you to share this love with those around you?

7. Pastor Chad said that 8 out of 10 people will accept an invitation to church if asked by someone that they know. In this Easter Season, who do you need to invite to hear about Jesus and His love for them? How will you invite them? What is your plan?
