Jesus Matters

Living a Resurrected Life

1 Corinthians 15:14 (NIV2011)

14  And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.

1 Corinthians 15:17 (NIV2011)

17  And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.

Luke 24:36-43 (NIV2011)

36  While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

37  They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost.

38  He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?

39  Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see;a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”

40  When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet.

41  And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?”

42  They gave him a piece of broiled fish,

43  and he took it and ate it in their presence.

1 Corinthians 15:12-13 (NIV2011)

12  But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13  If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.

Isaiah 26:19 (NLT)

19  But those who die in the LORD will live; their bodies will rise again!Those who sleep in the earth will rise up and sing for joy!For your life-giving light will fall like dew on your people in the place of the dead!

1 Corinthians 6:14 (NLT)

14  And God will raise us from the dead by his power, just as he raised our Lord from the dead.

Philippians 3:20-21 (NLT)

20  But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.

21  He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.

2 Corinthians 5:2-4 (NLT)

2  We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing.

3  For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies.

4  While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.

2 Corinthians 1:9-10 (NKJV)

9  Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead,

10  who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us,

Romans 6:3-4 (NIV)

3  Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

4  We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

Colossians 3:1-3 (NIV2011)

1  Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

2  Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

3  For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:1-3 (MSG)

1  So if you're serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides.

2  Don't shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that's where the action is. See things from his perspective.

3  Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life.

Ephesians 1:19-20 (TLB)

19  I pray that you will begin to understand how incredibly great his power is to help those who believe him. It is that same mighty power

20  that raised Christ from the dead...

Table Talk

Table Talk is designed for you and your family to discuss Sunday's message. Imagine sitting at the table together as a family, discussing the lesson learned in church and how it applies to your life.

  1. How does the resurrection of Christ set Christianity apart from all other belief systems? Why does the resurrection matter?
  2. What might you say to someone who believes that Jesus was spiritually raised from the dead but not physically raised?
  3. How often do you think about experiencing resurrection power in your day to day life? Did you consider that the resurrection could significantly influence in your daily life?
