In this two week Easter series “Wasted Grave” we are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus and what it means to us today. Jesus beat the grave 2,000 years ago, and because of that we have new life. The goal of this series isn’t to prove to students the historic event of Easter, but to lead them to consider who Jesus is: His life, resurrection, and message. When we discover who Jesus is, we can begin to walk in the redemptive power that He offers.
Scripture: John 3:16-17; Mark 2:16-17; Romans 3:22
Big Idea of the Message: Consider Jesus. Consider His Life, His Resurrection, and His Message. “I can’t, God can, I think I’ll let him” The grave was wasted so that you and I can find true life.
Scripture: John 21:15-17
Big Idea of the Message: Because of the resurrection, we have redemption. Your guilt is no match for God’s grace. We need to understand that God’s grace should change us.
