A Meal Laid Before Us
- In 1 Corinthians 15:17 the Apostle Paul says, “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.” Discuss Paul’s reasoning here. Do you agree with this statement?
- If you are a follower of Jesus, what were the emotions surrounding your original decision to put your faith in Christ? To what extent do those feelings remain fresh in your walk with Him?
- What would it mean to you to know that God sees and affirms your suffering?
- Jesus re-enters Peter’s story at a time when Peter was tempted to go back to “life as usual.” What area(s) of your life most often tempt you away from the mission of God/selfless service, deep community, seeking justice, etc.?
