Week of 4/16/2017

I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE

Talking through the message during the week helps you and your group turn what God is saying to you into action steps. Begin with the key questions, add any optional scriptures and questions if needed, and then wrap up by deciding on your next steps.

Main Idea

If my God can defeat death, my God can do anything including resurrecting me from my dead ends.

Key Questions

•What’s one idea from the message that really stood out to you? Why did this idea grab your attention?

•How have you experienced the truth that God’s delays are not God’s denials?

•What dead ends are you facing? How have these dead ends affected you?

Optional Questions

• With your Bible or YouVersion, read and discuss John 11:1-44.

• What steps can you take to resurrect yourself from your dead ends?

•Do you most often encounter dead ends in your doubts, discouragement, or in the delay? Explain.

•What are some of the spiritual doubts you wrestle with? Have you overcome these doubts? Why or why not?
