Easter Sunday

Application/Discussion Questions: 1. Jesus didn't defeat evil in the way most people expected, he did it by sacrificing himself, turning the other cheek, and loving all as he died. He did not combat evil with evil. Are there any situations where you need to take a closer look how you are responding to evil? Would you like to share? 2. Alexander Solzhenitsyn was a great Russian novelist and historian. He was an outspoken opponent of Communism and the Soviet Union, and suffered much for it... read how he framed the problem. “If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?” How does this perspective make you feel? Do you think it is an accurate? If so, does it change how you should respond to others? 3. In Jesus' death he destroyed evil, sin, and death. so that we can experience freedom from fear from death, to be free of slavery of sin. Do you live trusting, following and reflecting this throughout the stresses of life, work and relationships?
