Good Friday | Darkness + Dawn
Easter | Darkness + Dawn
- Jesus weeps with Mary and Martha in their grief. What does it reveal about the character of God in Jesus’ weeping at the death of Lazarus?
- Read Isaiah 53:1-6. What does this passage reveal about the heart of God towards our sin and suffering? How does the cross anchor us in our own suffering and grief?
- Even in our tears, we are following Jesus towards resurrection. What in your life is being touched by death… and where are you longing to see God bring resurrection?
- NT Wright says “Jesus’s resurrection is the beginning of God’s new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven.” Where are you seeing resurrection in your life now? Where is heaven breaking into earth around you?
Practice Resurrection. As Martha saw first hand, Jesus brings resurrection from the future into the present. We practice resurrection by embodying trust in the midst of the suffering we face in our everyday lives. This week, consider what faith as embodied trust looks like in your life. Where might you step out in obedience to God’s Spirit? How can you move your faith our of the hypothetical and into the everyday practices of your life?
