1 Thessalonians 4:14–18

Main Idea ||  For our faith to be irresistible, we must be confident & convinced that the story is true.   


Fill-In Notes:



  1. Oftentimes it seems people distance themselves from the claims of Christ for reasons that seem less intellectual and more emotional.  Do you agree? Why or why not?
  2. In the encounter between Mary Magdalene and the angel at the empty tomb, the angel (according to the gospel of Mark) tells Mary and the other women with her to go tell the disciples and Peter that Jesus is going to Galilee. Author Scott Sauls says he believes that the words “and Peter” are two of the most hopeful words ever spoken. Do you also find this hopeful?
  3. What if the flaws & failure of Christians, in the end, is the thing that makes the Christian movement irresistible to billions of souls all over the world?”

a.    Is it? Why?

b.   If we believe this, how could we do a better job of sharing that with others?
