Bible Workbench: Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010

Text: Luke 24:1-12

“Why do you look for the living among the dead?” Who are the “dead” in your life? Name some of those who have expired and are breathing no more. Now name some of those you know who are “dead” even though they are breathing and walking around. How is it possible to be “dead” before the grave? Who are some of the dead in your world among whom you keep hoping to find the “living”? What are some of the graves you keep visiting? How is it possible for there to be both “dead” and “alive” parts of you? What are symptoms of your deadness and aliveness that you encounter in yourself every day? What does the “dead” part feel, look, sound like? And the alive part? What do you experience of seeking life in the midst of what is clearly dead in you? How do you search for the living in such deadness? How are your “dead” and the “alive” both needed? How did some of your choices yesterday demonstrate that both parts of you compete for your energy and affection? What about today?
