Touching Base 3
So, how are things going? Which idea from this week’s lesson and devotionals really challenged or encouraged you in your relationship with Jesus?
In what ways are you making decisions and choices that reflect your faith in Jesus Christ?
In what ways are you connecting with other believers and sharing what you are learning about what it means to have a new life in Christ?

As you consider all that you read and experienced this week, what Biblical truth most encouraged you in your relationship with Jesus?

Earlier this week Beth Yoe wrote, “We want to be faithful and wise servants that are ready on His return! It matters greatly how we live our lives, both for our benefit now and for His ultimate return.” In what way(s) are your currently living your life in anticipation for Jesus Christ’s return? Is this a new thought for you? What difference does it really make for us that Jesus Christ is going to return?
John the Baptist was a truly humble servant of God. Have you ever thought about humility as a character quality of a Jesus-follower? How do you see this quality in others around you?
Just yesterday, John 1:29 reminded us again of our sin. “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). As you are learning more about God from His Word, what thoughts do you have about sin in general, and about your own sin in particular?
Is there anything specific you need or want to do in the coming week to be more intentional about following Jesus?

Take a few minutes to memorize this verse:
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39)
