Questions for Reflection and Discussion

There are 3 distinct responses we have to decide to do:

  1. Roll away the stone.                                                                                                  Jesus is calling you individually, by name.                                                                            What is He calling you out of?                                                                                                  What have you covered up in your life that you don’t want Jesus or anyone to see? Confess your sin and areas you have hidden for so long.  Repent.  Repent means “to change one’s way of life as the result of a complete change of thought and attitude with regard to sin and righteousness – to repent, to change one’s way’.
  1. Respond to Jesus calling you out of the grave.                                                        What areas in your life has Jesus called you and you have not moved out to meet Him?                                                                                                                                      What is stopping you?
  1. Be part of a community.                                                                                               Allow others to help you, support you and also hold you accountable. (give you Godly comfort not human comfort).                                                                                   Be there for others when they need you.  You cannot do that from the comfort of your home.                                                                                                                               Be in community.
