Does Easter Bring You Faith

Does Easter Bring You Faith? Lesson Objective:  To understand the importance of faith in our lives and where we can find that faith Scripture: 1 Peter 1: 3-9  ( verses 5-7) ; James 2:26; Romans 10:9 Isaiah 40: 31; Psalm 39:7 Christian hope is a bold hope that looks back to the risen Jesus in order to look forward.   Introduction “Hail Ceasar” is a movie that uses comedy to teach us some basic Christian principles: When making decisions it may be helpful for us to ask the question “ What would God want me to do?” To be truly happy we must do what God wants us to do No matter what it is.. things will not work like it should without Faith The lesson today is on Faith and how one can have faith because of Easter and furthermore one cannot have faith without Easter. Definition of Faith Dictionary --complete trust or confidence in someone or something Bible - Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." Hebrew 11:1 Hebrew word- yachel which translates wait with expectations ( Greek elpis) Examples of Faith scriptures 1 Peter 1: 3-9 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead- verse 3 James 2:26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead Christ was an activist and we are expected tobe activist   Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Isaiah 40: 31 but those who hope in the Lordwill renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;    they run and not grow weary,     they will walk and not be faint. Hope here is quite similar to faith expecting and knowing Psalm 39:7 My hope is in you Easter was a time for change John 19: 28-30—It is finished Greek word tetelesti  means paid in full The importance of Faith Hebrews 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 Corinthians 5:7 We walk by faith and not by sight Question for us all… How are we exercising our faith?
