READ

John 1:1-6

Revelation 22:12-14, 16-17, 20-21

Here’s what happens.

John’s gospel speaks of the eternal word of God who becomes a human being and walked on earth. In Revelation, that same human being, Jesus is acknowledged as the Alpha and the Omega, of the Lord of all time.

Memory Verse ““God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him” (1 John 4:9).

DISCUSS 

1. Share what you did last week to respond to Jesus’ call.

2. Do you think of Jesus more as a human being or as God.

3. What does it mean for you that Jesus is fully divine?

4. What does it mean for you that Jesus is fully human?

5. The book of Revelation is very much about imagery. What do you think the following images mean?

a. Alpha and Omega

b. Spirit and bride

c. water of life

d. wash their robes

e. bright morning star

6. Re-read both passages slowly twice. Reflecting on what stands out to you as the key words.

PRAY 

Let us pray

Lord Jesus, we long for when you will come again, to restore the world to the way you made it to be. As the Spirit and bride say ‘Come’ Lord help us to respond, to crave the living water that brings life and hope and eternal life. Come Lord Jesus, come into our hearts and into our lives,. And may the grace of the Lord Jesus be with us all.

Luke 22:54 – 62

John 21:15-19 

Here’s what happens… 

Following Jesus arrest he is taken to the high priest’s house. The disciples flee except for Peter who follows and waits in the courtyard. Three times a servant girl aske Peter if he is one of Jesus followers. Three times Peter says no, and finally says I don’t even know him. Weeks later, following his resurrection Peter and others are out fishing catching nothing and Jesus tells them to cast the net on the other side of the boat, and behold another miraculous catch. They come to the beach and Jesus questions Peter three times asking ‘Do you love me?’ Mirroring Peter’s 3 denials and challenges him each time to feed his sheep or lambs. Restoring Peter to his place as a disciple and follower of Jesus. He finishes by saying follow me.

Memory Verse ““God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him” (1 John 4:9).

3. Can you think of people or places where you are afraid to speak about Jesus. What would help in those situations.

4. Like Peter Jesus knows there are times you have let him down and he forgives you and says come and follow me. Are you committed to respond.

5. What will you do this week to intentionally respond to Jesus call?

6. Who would you most like to see come to know Jesus? Share and pray for them now.

7. Be prepared to share some of these questions next week about what God has done.

PRAY 

Let us pray

Merciful God, Like Peter I am aware of the times that I have failed you and even denied you. I am truly sorry. I repent for ever having offended You, I acknowledge my many failures and give thanks that I can claim your forgiveness and blessing. I re-commit myself to following you. Help us to believe and trust in You even more, for Your grace and power is greater than our comprehension! In Jesus' name,

Amen.

Jonah 1:1-2 and 3:1-10

Here’s what happens. The story of Jonah

The story of Jonah is a story that speaks of the character of God, the grace of God and that God’s mission is for the whole world. God speaks to Jonah, a prophet that he is to go and preach to the people of Ninevah of God’s impending destruction of the city. Jonah doesn’t want to do it so he runs the other way, and ends up spending 3 days in a whale’s belly before he agrees to go to Ninevah. He goes into the city and preaches and the people repent. God relents and accepts Ninevah’s repentance. Jonah is angry at God because God will not punish Ninevah and runs away to die. God provides a tree o shade Jonah, and then kills it to challenge Jonah about forgiveness and grace.

Memory Verse “No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39).
