Dead – April 28, 2019

Judges 8.18-9.21; Luke 23.44-24.12; Psalm 99.1-9; Proverbs 14.9-10

We often arrive at worship on Easter morning dressed in our finest, big smiles on our faces, ready to celebrate a risen Lord. Don’t forget, however, that first Easter morning was filled with sad disciples making a painful journey to where they were certain their friend and their Lord lay dead. How does the pain of Saturday or early Sunday morning make the joy of Easter Sunday complete?

Questions:

How can we be people who assume that we are not leading others, but that God is?

How do you think you would have reacted if you had been standing at the foot of the cross when Jesus died?

What does it mean for us today to say that God is our king?

In what ways do we make fun or belittle the idea of guilt? How can we make certain we are not doing this?
