I hope you’re having a good week and aren’t letting the dreary weather affect your mood too much! We’re looking forward to seeing you all again on Sunday – and when better weather returns and restrictions relax, we hope to be able to meet up with some of you for a walk outdoors. I don’t think we’ll take simple freedoms, like a dander with friends, for granted ever again!
Prep for next class
This Sunday, we’re going to take a look at how Daniel and his friends responded to ungodly laws and think about how they were able to face unjust suffering with such courage.
Read the story: Daniel 3:1-6, Daniel 6:1-9.
Now, read these five verses: 1 Peter 2:13, 17 and 1 Peter 4:15, 16, 19.
Think: Is it ever right for a Christian to break the law? If something is legal, does that make it right? If something is illegal, does that make it wrong?
Our next lesson is titled ‘To Whom shall We Go?’. We will consider a major turning point in the ministry of the Lord Jesus.
Read: John 6:22-71; Matthew 16:13-28; 17:1-13
Think: These are quite long passages and the one in John can be difficult. Don’t worry about getting bogged down in the details right now (unless you’re up for it!). The events in Matthew seem to have happened shortly after the events in John. Why do you think I call this a major turning point for Christ’s ministry? What changed in the relationship between the Lord and his disciples?
See you all on Sunday at 3pm 🙂
