Welcome back to our week of study from the last half of Week 4 of Finding I Am. I hope you are finding this study as sweet as I am. When you draw close to the realness and the personalization of who Jesus is, not only in the Bible but who He is to us personally, it is sweet indeed.
Here is the link for this weeks video.
Please come back here to comment on a few questions.
1. Jesus is THE Way, THE Truth and THE Life. This I AM statement is the clearest example in Scripture of the certainty of Jesus being the only way to eternal life.
What makes you uncomfortable about this statement?
What is comforting about this statment?
What would you say to those who claim this is narrow minded and non-inclusive?
2. How has staying within the boundaries of God's truth brought you freedom?
3. Referring to page 128 we did a long exercise of looking at the prophecies about Jesus in the OT and where these were fulfilled in the NT. Despite the clarity of these fulfilled prophecies, many of the Jews didn't recognize Him as the Messiah. They were looking for the Messiah to come in a different way. We know that God's ways are different than our ways. Those ways are many times opposite of what we want and expect. Therefore we need to consider God's purposes and align our expectations and desires around His.
We have expectations of how we think God may move in our lives. How might you need to adjust your expecations and desires around His? Remember that He is the Alpha and Omega, He knows your beginning and your end and everything in between and He will perfect or complete that which concerns you. He is the Way, and has a better way!
This week watch Lysa's video session 5 and complete week 5, Days 1 & 2.
I can't believe we're getting close to the end.
I luvurfaces! Have a great week.
