Big Ideas:

  • Sin makes us dead, but through Jesus’ death and resurrection we can be raised from spiritual death to life.
  • Being a part of God’s family means we have been given a new hope of a new life.
  • In our sin, we had no hope; as a member of God’s family we live a life full of hope.
  • This hope shapes the way we live and our purpose in life.

Bible Story:

John 11:1-44

We are all spiritually dead and God gives us new life through Jesus Christ. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead as a symbol of what His death on the cross does for every person who believes in Him. Jesus gives us a new hope through His own death and resurrection.



Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
