Connect Up: Why is believing in God as a real Person, and not an impersonal force, important for biblical Christianity? Here are a few things to discuss: the Bible teaches it (see Psalm 103:13); Jesus taught it (see Matthew 6:26; John 10:28-30; 17:24); the Apostles taught it (see John 2:15, 3:1; Romans 8:15; and James 1:17).

Connect In: What are some of the ways we can demonstrate we have a personal relationship with the personal God? Here are a few points to ponder: being born again (see John 3:7-8); access to God in prayer (see Mathew 6:9); the Holy Spirit confirms it (see Romans 8:15-17); God's love for us and in us (see 1 John 4:19). What other aspects of our life demonstrate that we have a personal relationship with God?

Connect Out: As Pastor Skip pointed out, the resurrection is clearly taught throughout the Bible. What points would you bring up with a non-believer about the resurrection? Consider these points: it was prophesied (see Luke 9:22); the risen Jesus was seen by His friends (see Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-8; and John 20:1-13; Jesus was seen by many (see 1 Corinthians 15:6); His disciples were willing to die for their faith (see Acts 7:54-8:2).
