Fear Gives Way
Summary and Goal
Easter is the most important day in history, the pinnacle of God’s plan to redeem people from sin through Jesus Christ. In this session, we will explore the resurrection of Jesus from Matthew’s account. Jesus’ arrest, crucifixion, and death prompted great fear in His disciples, but we will see that when they encountered the risen Christ, that fear gave way to belief, joy, and obedience. The resurrection of Jesus offers the same to us today.
1. Fear gives way to belief because of the empty tomb (Matt. 28:1-6).
2. Fear gives way to joy because of the empty tomb (Matt. 28:7-8).
3. Fear gives way to obedience because of the empty tomb (Matt. 28:9-10).
Session in a Sentence
The resurrection of Jesus Christ enables us to put fear behind us as we believe in Him and joyfully obey Him.
Jesus rose from the dead just as He said He would, proving that He is the Son of God and worthy of our worship. When we believe that Jesus died and rose again, we are brought into God’s family and can joyfully serve Him.
Because we trust Jesus rose from the dead to provide salvation, we put fear behind us and joyfully obey our calling to tell others about the resurrected Savior.
