Love one another as Jesus taught, know that His resurrection overcame sin and death, and be assured of His return to take believers unto Himself — words of encouragement at Easter in Bible study curricula from LifeWay Christian Resources.\
Reflections by the writers of Bible Studies for Life, Explore the Bible and YOU! during the Easter season were shared with Baptist Press from LifeWay’s five ongoing Bible study/Sunday School curricula, which also include The Gospel Project and SmallGroup.com.
Bible Studies for Life
“The resurrection of Jesus was the ultimate proof of God’s faithfulness to His disciples, and is the ultimate statement of His faithfulness to me,” Bible Studies for Life lesson writer David Fleming told Baptist Press of the Easter study from Luke 24:10-12.
“God can do anything, even what appears to be impossible to me,” said Fleming, senior pastor of the four-site Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston. “God will always be faithful to Himself and His Word, and therefore will always be faithful to me when I am walking in obedience to His Word and living in the resurrection power of His Spirit.”
Fleming wrote of the discovery of an empty tomb by Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James and other women who visited the tomb where Jesus was placed after His crucifixion. Although Peter and other disciples did not believe the women’s account, Peter was amazed when he discovered the empty tomb.
“In a fallen and broken world,” Fleming told Baptist Press, “we have a message of hope: Jesus has overcome sin and brokenness and by faith, we can too.
“Because Jesus died and was raised again, we can live in restored fellowship with our God, and walk in the victory of His resurrection power,” Fleming noted as exhortations from the lesson. “The resurrection truly changes everything, for now and forever, for those who believe in and are trusting in Jesus.
“That is a message worth sharing, and we must share with everyone.”
