What amazing thing have you seen this week?

 

Read

Luke 24:1 – 12

Jesus is risen

 

Talk

·         Given all that had happened during the previous few days, how might they feel as they prepared to go to the tomb?

·         What were the reactions of the women and the disciples to the news that Jesus was alive?

 

For many people, the resurrection doesn’t make any sense, it is a mystery that we grow to understand slowly in our lives.  The friends of Jesus didn’t understand what had happened.  What they did was to stay together and talk about what they knew and didn’t know.

 

·         What do you understand and don’t yet understand about Jesus’ resurrection?

 

Sometimes we can understand the resurrection by the way we live with each other.  Talk about the ways that you show forgiveness and love to each other, the way that you share and encourage each other.  When you do these you are showing what it means that Jesus lives and brings new life to us.

 

Pray

Dear God.  Alleluia!  We praise you for the miracle of the resurrection.  Help us to live with the amazing news that Jesus is risen today every day. Amen 

 

Bless

Say, “Alleluia! Christ is risen!” – Let others respond, “Christ is Risen indeed! Alleluia!”
