All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.

The lives of Jesus' friends were changed on the day of his resurrection. Our lives are changed as we become Easter people through God's grace.
The Easter: People unit uses the Bible story included in John 20. John 20 tells the story of Jesus' resurrection. Mary Magdalene first discovers the empty tomb and tells Peter and another disciple. Mary then sees the risen Christ and speaks with him. Later that day Christ appears to the other disciples. Thomas, however, is not there and does not believe his friends when they tell him Christ has risen. A week later Jesus appears to Thomas and gives him physical proof of his death and resurrection. John ends the chapter by stating his purpose in writing his Gospel: to tell all people that Jesus is the Son of God so they too can believe.
Scripture: John 20
