March 31st - Jesus Said These Things (Day 7)

By: Dawson

Watch: this short video!

 

Read: Matthew 26:31-35, 69-75 and 1 Peter 1:6-7

 

Reflect: 

  1. What does Peter say about the rewards of faith 1 Peter 1:6-7? What does he compare the testing of faith to?

  2. In this passage, Jesus predicts Peter’s denial, but Peter doesn’t believe him, instead relying on his own self-confidence. When have you relied on yourself to do something, only for it to not work out the way you believed it would?

  3. In what areas of your life can you change your mindset from one of failure and defeat to one of growth and thankfulness for being tested?

Do

  1. Write a letter to your past self at a time when you believed you had failed. What would you tell them to encourage them? Once you’re done, reflect on how those encouragements apply to your present situation.

March 30th- Jesus Said These Things (Day 6)

By: Lexy

Watch this short video: 

 

READ: Luke 17:11-19 (NIV)

11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy[a] met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”

14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.

15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”

REFLECT: 

  1. If you were a leper in this situation, do you think you would have been the 1 out of ten to go thank God for his works? Why?

  2. How often do you think you practice the easy task of saying thank you just in everyday life? How often do you thank God? Do you think you could improve? (note: we are human and won’t always say thank you for everything, but it is a good practice to try and do consistently!)

  3. It can be pretty easy to get caught up in the moment and not realize all of the amazing things God gives us everyday, what are some “gifts from God” that you have received lately but may have overlooked? (they can be as small as getting laundry done to as big as sunshine and a nice day!) 

 

CHALLENGE: 

This next week, for at least one family gathering or meal a day, I challenge you to go around the room and ask each family member 2 things of what they are thankful for! It doesn’t have to be anything huge, it can be as small as the birds chirping or someone helping you with housework.

March 27th- Jesus Said These Things (Day 5)

By: Mitchel

 

Watch: This short video!

Read: Matthew 11:25-30, 2 Corinthians 12:9-10.

 

Reflect: 

  1. In Matthew 11:29, Jesus extends an invitation for us to “take his yoke.” He does not desire for us to run alone. In what ways have you been running on your own strength? Where have you taken some wrong turns and need Jesus to pick you up and guide you back to the path?

  2. Also in verse 29, Jesus says that He is “gentle and humble in heart.” Make a list of how Jesus has been gentle to you.

  3. In 2 Corinthians 12:9, Paul quotes Jesus saying, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” In what ways do you need to receive God’s sufficient grace? 

Do

  1. Spend some time in prayer about a few things:

    1. Thank God for what He has done.

    2. Thank God for who He is.

    3. Confess any burdens that you have to Him.

    4. Ask God to strengthen you today.

  2. A fun one.. Call a friend that you have not talked to in a few days and check up on them :)

March 25th - Jesus Said These Things (Day 3)

By: Noah

 

Watch: This short video!

 

Read: John 16:22-33, Romans 8:31-39

 

Reflect: 

  1. In John 16:22-33 is Jesus encouraging his disciples that despite the grief and trials they will go through soon after his arrest. He knows the fear and sorrow they will experience and on that fear and sorrow he asks them to go to ask the Father in his name and Father will give them joy.  What are some prayers you can bring to the Father in prayer? Spend some time praying for those things.

  2. In verse 33 Jesus says that he has overcome the world. What are some ways in which you have seen Jesus overcome recently?

  3. After reading Romans 8:31-39 What are some of the things you feel separate you away from the love of Christ? Spend some time thinking about the incredible grace that is given so that nothing can separate you from Christ.

  4. In what ways can you be more than a conqueror through Christ? Where can you be ready to see God come through in some spectacular ways  

Do

  1. Spend time praying for your worries, turn your fears into prayers.

  2. Keep a list of the ways in which God has been victorious, journal, tell someone, whatever it is make known and celebrate the victories through Christ.

March 23rd - Jesus Said These Things (Day 1)

By: Andrew

 

Watch: this short video 

 

Read: Matthew 6:25-34, Ephesians 5:8-21

 

Reflect: 

  1. In this passage, Jesus helps us reframe what is truly important. In the midst of walking through this global pandemic, what are some of the things that you have realized aren’t that important? And what are some of the things that you have realized are truly important. Try making two lists: 1) a not important list, and a 2) truly important list. 

  2. What truths do you see in Ephesians 5:8-14? 

  3. How do those enable you to live out vs. 15-21?
