Faith WOD


READ:  Matthew 22

REFLECT:  How did the religious leaders question the resurrection, and how did Jesus respond?

RESOLVE:  List 3 reasons why you believe in the resurrection of Christ.

"And as for the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was said to you by God: 32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not God of the dead, but of the living.”


  1. At first I didnt know how to answer this...when I think of what 'proof' there is of Jesus Resurrection I was stuck. But I did find this which helped me get unstuck...

  2. Faith in God's Word is the reason I believe in the resurrection...I really can't think of three reasons...they tried to trick Jesus with these extrement questions...similar to, "Well, if a person is on his way to be baptized and dies in a card wreck, then will he be saved?"...Alton H. Howard wrote in 1977 I Believe in Jesus...powerful words!

  3. i am new to this, but i would like to thank who ever puts this together. i have been looking for a devotional or group to get involved in and since 85% of my client base is crossfitters, this just seemed a perfect spot!! so, Like tom i'm a little confused as how to respond. for me, 1 reason i believe in the resurrection of Christ is b/c it is written in His word....which sounds like a cop-out answer but if you believe the bible is the word of God then you simple accept it on faith...2) i believe in the resurrection, b/c i have been born again in Christ....i have experienced it through baptism and in how i have been made new....the desires of my heart have changed and now i'm alive in Him who died for me...
    not sure if this is what was asked but it's what i thought of....

  4. Why I believe in the Resurrection of Christ...

    Precursor: Because without it, my faith is in vain

    1)Because the Power of God is limitless and can accomplish all things
    2)Because Jesus foretold His Passion, Death & Resurrection from the dead
    3)Because of the witness of the Apostles & Saints which means I do not need personal evidence or experience

  5. I believe in the resurrection through faith alone. That is faith in the bible, and faith based on what I have seen God do in my own life. When you ask God into your heart and see the way He works in the miracles of your own life, your faith strengthens and you develop a thirst for the living water.
