Touching Base 2

It’s time to take a day to step back and reflect on all that you’ve read, thought about, and experienced in the past week.

In what new ways are you experiencing Jesus in your life?

In what ways is God’s Word affecting your mind, your life, and your relationships?

Are you finding ways to connect with other believers and talk about what you are learning regarding what it means to have a new life in Christ?

If necessary, go back and read anything you received this week that you want to reconsider … or that you missed!

Reflection

This week, what Biblical truth really challenged you? Encouraged you? Convicted you?

You are God’s child and you have a new life in Christ! What impact is this knowledge making on your everyday life?

On Tuesday, Beth Yoe wrote, “How lavishly He has loved us!” In what ways do you see God’s love in your life as “lavish”? In what ways does this concept seem difficult for you to understand or apply to your life?

A theme throughout this week has been: God with us. What does this phrase mean to you? How are you experiencing it?  What questions do you have about it?

Even though you may be a new Christian, you can share God’s truth! Is there anyone in your life you can identify as needing Jesus in their life? How can you begin to speak God’s truth into their life?

Just yesterday, Beth Yoe observed, “The solution to our sin is Jesus!” We’ll be discussing “sin” in more detail later, but what is your initial reaction to her statement about Jesus being the solution to our sin?

Is there anything specific you need or want to do in the coming week to be more intentional about following Jesus?

Go a Step Beyond

Here’s this week’s recommendation for an online article with information on what it means to have a new life in Jesus Christ:

Take the time needed to memorize this verse:

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
