Often in churches we hear the message, "the end is near". But, that's not the message of Jesus. The Resurrection teaches that "the Beginning is Near!" What does this contrast mean to you?
"Just when things look like they're falling apart, they might just be coming together." After the crucifixion of Jesus, what evidence do we see that people thought things had fallen apart?

Reflect on the following passage and discuss the quote from Andy Stanley, "nobody expected no body."
The Resurrection wasn't just an event, it displayed who Jesus is and how He works. How does the following passage help us see how God works in the world and in us?
Resurrection is all around us and in us! Discuss reminders of this as seen in nature, circumstances, and people.
"Just when things look like they're falling apart, they might just be coming together." There is no resurrection without a crucifixion. How might this affect our perspective of pain?
How does this apply to your own life? What looks or feels like it's falling apart? Your marriage, a relationship, your career or finances, your dreams or purpose? How might you view and approach this situation differently with the truth that God is a God of new life, new chances, and fresh starts? May each sunrise serve as a reminder of the hope that the beginning is near.
