Family Devotional Guide - 3/31/19
Scripture: Romans 14:5-6
Discussion: Our Easter devotional, Love to the Uttermost, mentions that many Christians have found Holy Week (Palm Sunday-Easter) a meaningful time. How does Romans 14:5-6 relate to this? How we make sure this week is centered more on Christ than tradition? And how are we to treat those who don’t necessarily observe Holy Week/Easter?
Song: “The Love of God” by Frederick M. Lehman & Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai
Scripture: John 13:1, Philippians 2:1-11
Discussion: In Love to the Uttermost, emphasis is placed on the word uttermost. Consider some ways this word captures the sacrifice of Christ on the cross as our substitute, especially focusing on the Philippians passage above.
Song: “Jesus Messiah” by Chris Tomlin, Daniel Carson, Ed Cash & Jesse Reeves
Scripture: John 10:1-18
Discussion: What lessons do we learn about Christ’s death and resurrection from this passage? How is this different from the behavior of a typical shepherd with regard to his sheep?
