The Abounding Grace of Jesus

February 14, 2020
By Pastor Jathan

The Abounding Grace of Jesus – 1 Timothy 1:14-17

 

Digging Deeper:

  • What is Christ’s mission?  How does Paul underscore it in this text?
  • What does Christ’s mission tell us about God?
  • How did God’s sovereign grace overcome Paul’s unbelief?  What did God’s grace provide?
  • How did Paul’s testimony encourage others to believe in Christ?
  • Even though we are forgiven, why is it appropriate to remember our former life without Christ?

Other Passages to Consider:

Ps 86:12-13; Mark 10:45; Luke 5:31-32; Acts 9:1-19; 26:9-18; Eph 2:1-10; Titus 3:3-7; Luke 19:10

Christ's Galilean Ministry

February 08, 2020
By Pastor Jathan

Christ’s Galilean Ministry – Matthew 4:18-25

 

Digging Deeper:

  • Why did Jesus call disciples at the beginning of His ministry instead of simply ministering alone?
  • What do you notice about Christ’s call and the disciples’ response?
  • How does “fisher of men” describe what Christ has come to do?
  • Will this popularity of Jesus continue through His ministry?  Why not?
  • What can you praise Jesus for from this text?

Other Passages to Consider:

Isaiah 35; 61; Matt 8:18-22; 28-34; 9:1-8; 10:21-22; 34-37; 12:46-50; 17:14-21; 1 Cor 1:26-31

The Dawn of a Great Light

January 31, 2020
By Pastor Jathan

The Dawn of a Great Light – Matthew 4:12-17

 

Digging Deeper:

  • What was significant about the place where Jesus chose to minister?  What does this say about the Gospel?
  • Think about the Bible’s use of the term “darkness” to describe a person without Christ.  What all does this say about their condition?
  • Jesus is the Light of the World (John 8:12).  What does this tell us about His saving work? (Hint: What does light do to darkness?)
  • How does a person go from darkness to light?  What does God do?  What is man’s response?
  • Who can you pray for who is in darkness?  How might God use you to shine the light of Christ into their lives?

Other Verses to Consider:

Isa 9:1-2,6-7; Matt 5:14-16; 28:19; John 1:1-14; 3:19; 8:12; 12:46; 2 Cor 4:6; Eph 5:8; Col 1:13; 1 Pet 2:9

January 24, 2020
By Pastor Jathan

The Obedient Son, The Triumphant Savior - Matt 4:1-11

 

Digging Deeper:

  • Why did the Spirit lead Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted?
  • What was Satan trying to get Jesus to doubt about the Father?
  • In the third temptation, what is Satan tempting Jesus to abandon?
  • Why is it significant that Jesus obeyed where Israel had failed?
  • How does Jesus’s victory here point toward His saving triumph over Satan?
  • How do these temptations make Jesus a sympathetic High Priest?
  • How did Jesus resist these temptations?  Do we have the same resources available to us?

Other Passages to Consider:

Ex 17:1-7; Deut 6; 8:1-3; Ps 2:7-8; 91; 72:8-11; Dan 7:13-14; Matt 12:28-29; 16:21-23; 27:40-44; Col 1:13-14; Heb 2:17-18; 5:7-9
