Week 3 || Genesis: Good and Evil
Date: 4.21.19
Text: Genesis 3:1-15

Conversation Starters help us dig deeper, connecting Sunday’s sermons with our everyday lives. These prompts have been designed to help Community Groups grow in their relationship with God, with one another, and with their neighbors.

Genesis 3:1-15 records humanity’s fall into sin and death, while John 20:11-18 documents Mary’s discovery that death has been defeated and Jesus is alive. When we consider the biblical story that unfolds from the Garden of Eden to the empty garden tomb, we see that Christ’s resurrection is the ultimate solution to our greatest need.

Talk about your memories of Easter as a child. Did you celebrate Easter? If so, what did it mean to you then?

Sunday’s sermon insisted that every person is their own greatest problem. What do you think about that claim?

In Genesis 3, the serpent causes Eve to question God’s goodness. What leads you to question God’s goodness?

READ John 20:11-18. Put yourself in Mary’s place. How would you feel alone at the tomb? How would you respond to Jesus saying your name?

READ Genesis 3:15. This verse proclaims “gospel hope” — promising that one day Satan will be destroyed, and evil ultimately defeated. Where do you need “gospel hope”? What does this promise mean to you?

PRAY. Ask for the Lord to bring “gospel hope” to areas where God’s goodness is difficult to see. Ask God to make the good news of Christ’s resurrection a source of confidence and courage for you this week.

Title: Good and Evil
Scripture: Genesis 3:1-15
Speaker: Reid Kapple, ReidK@ChristCommunityKC.org

>> We are our greatest problem
“If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?” -Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
>> Death is our greatest consequence
>> Easter is the greatest solution
By weakness and defeat, He won a glorious crown,
Trod all our foes beneath His feet, By being trodden down.
He Satan’s power laid low; Made sin, He sin overthrew,
Bowed to the grave, destroyed it so, And death, by dying, slew.

Turning 30: Stories of Bold Faith

To launch our Turning 30 celebration season, we’ll be hosting Stories of Bold Faith gatherings. Each gathering will feature games, goodies, and delicious desserts, and all of Christ Community’s campus pastors, along with our senior pastors, will be in attendance. These events will give participants time to connect with one another and to hear the story of God’s big answers to our big prayers. Childcare available for birth–kindergarten. Go online or more information and childcare registration.
