Resurrection Sunday Outline
John Wimber, Founder of the Vineyard movement, would say, ‘Everybody gets to play.’ To that end, next Sunday, we all get to be the message. Here’s the loose structure that I see for our time together:
Letting ourselves be inspired by thinking of the six commitments of Jesus that enabled him to finish the mission he’d been given:
complete the mission
watch for distractions
keep in prayer touch
a. (We’ll be among friends so) let’s share how we have experienced the leading/empowering of the Holy Spirit in any of these commitments. What has that done in our lives, for our faith? for our excitement about the Gospel message? Other? (there’s no one right answer. God so loves us that He works uniquely in each heart.)
b. put artistic gifts to creating something that in some way reflects one or all of these commitments.
c. What Scriptures illustrate one or all of these commitments?
d. What are the takeaways for us this Resurrection Sunday?
e. Whatever the Holy Spirit is prompting us to share, seemingly related or not (FYI: it will relate, don’t worry!)
Above all, let’s make this a true celebration! (Dare I say, Have fun?)
‘By “the Lord” what I mean is the Spirit, and in any heart where the Spirit of the Lord is present, there is liberty. Now all of us . . . reflect the glory of the Lord as if we are mirrors; and so we are being transformed, metamorphosed, into this same image from one radiance of glory to another, just as the Spirit of the Lord accomplishes it.’
2 Corinthians 3:17,18, The VOICE.
