Sermon Notes -Resurrection and Marriage (Seven Brothers and One ‘Worn-Out’ Woman)!

Theme:

Resurrection and Marriage

(Seven Brothers and One ‘Worn-Out’ Woman)!

 

Key Preaching Verses

Luke 20.37-38:  Jesus’ reply to the Sadducees question, “But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’.  He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”

Focus Questions

  • Today’s Gospel reading from St Luke is proof positive that Jesus is not threatened by people’s questions!  Does Faith Community try to encourage the questions of our people?  What are the questions of faith and life that you would really like to ask?
  • Do you believe in eternal life?  Why?
  • What is the difference between the New Age Movement’s belief in the immortality of the human soul and the Christian belief in resurrection?
  • What are the keys that unlock the door to eternal life for Christian believers?  Is it something we can do for ourselves or something that God gives us?
  • Is resurrection life something that happens to us after we die or is resurrection life something we can begin to live in this present life, through our faith in Jesus Christ?

Take Home Challenge

  • I prefer the term resurrection life rather than eternal lifeₒₒₒ (Develop)
  • Why do you believe in resurrection life?
