[Thought questions for Christ, the Law and the Gospel May 28, 2014]

1. Memory text. Does the word “but” in the memory text (John 1:17) trouble you in any way? (…the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth…through Jesus Christ…) Could you explain to someone that this does NOT mean that the law has no place in the gospel of Jesus Christ? Does law contradict grace in any way? What is the end result of the law–and grace–in our hearts?

[Thought questions for The Law of God and the Law of Christ May 21, 2014]

1. The law of God and the law of Christ. Are we guided by two laws? One the law of the God eternal and almighty, the other of Christ the Saviour? If you think so, what is different about these two laws? During Jesus’ ministry on earth, which law did He follow and preach? Why?

Truth

This has gone down in history as one of the greatest spiritual and moral failures of all time. It was a seemingly unforgivable offense. With fear overtaking his faith and trust, Peter denied knowing the Man he had spent his last years following as a faithful, trusted disciple.

Peter had seen it all, from entire villages being healed from disease to the raising of the dead. He had witnessed miracles that were beyond the imagination. He was a first-hand witness as […]

[Thought Questions for Christ, the End of the Law May 14, 2014]

Intro. Read the title of this week’s lesson again. What does it mean that Christ is the “end” of the law? Hasn’t the law existed forever? Don’t we love God’s law in the same way the psalmist David did? Doesn’t the law reflect the character of Christ? Then how can Christ be the end of it? Take a long hard look at this week’s lesson because there are blessings around […]
