For your convenience, this material is also offered in printer-friendly form.


It can be easy to think that Easter is all about something that happened a long, long time ago, and might make a difference a long, long time from now. Jesus rose from the dead over 2,000 years ago, and because of this Christians hope to experience eternal life one day. But what does that have to do with today? As it turns out - everything! 

Jesus' victory over death and evil was like a switch that changed the world as we know it, and it has implications for every single aspect of our lives: our relationships, our sense of self and purpose, our families, our character, and how we engage with darkness in the world. In the years right after the resurrection of Jesus, a young Christian community was learning all about this. And this spring, we'll join them in learning how Easter is more than a once-a-year celebration. It's a change for a lifetime and beyond! 

If you would like to go deeper, we highly recommend reading N.T. Wright’s Ephesians: 11 studies for individuals and groups

This is a discussion guide for Highrock’s Switch: Easter Changes Everything sermon series that walks through the New Testament book of Ephesians. It is best used collectively with a small group. You are invited to take notes on each sermon and Scripture text and then use the reflection questions and prompts to discuss your reflection with others. You will also find a closing prayer for each week. 

When considering the reflection questions: notice those that resonate with you and spend some time wrestling with them. The goal is not to answer everything or have all the “right” answers―instead, let these questions serve as a starting point for your conversation with God and others. See the Appendix of this guide for more resources and opportunities to engage with this study.
